9780674088634: The Iran-Iraq War
Revue de presse :

An Evening Standard Best Book of 2015

"Pierre Razoux's The Iran-Iraq War is better by a mile than most of the military history that floods the English market. Very topical too since we will be getting to know Iran much more in future and its history should be required reading." --Evening Standard

Once a decade, a book appears in which the creative genius and technical skill of the author perfectly match a vast subject. The French defence expert Pierre Razoux s book on the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war is superb and hugely topical [...] Razoux has a brilliant and economical way of making what became huge and complex battles intensely readable (the maps are excellent too) [...] One of the many merits of Razoux s book is that subjects that might have resulted in pages of Fergal Keane-style sentimental guff are almost coldly treated [...] This is a long book, but it is filled with dramatic incident on every page [...] This is a masterwork and anyone interested in where Iran goes next for Iraq will surely cease to be a unitary state should read the historian of real genius. -- The Times

The Iran-Iraq War offers as useful a case study as any in how conflicts begin and are brought to an end [...] we have reason to be grateful to Razoux, who between chapters zooms out of the battlefield to focus on the international power struggles and diplomacy that helped shape various confrontations in the war [...] What emerges in illuminating detail from Razoux s study is the impact of the power struggle between Ayatollah Khomeini s two protégés [...] Razoux highlights the critical role of oil, which, even if it wasn t the casus belli, informed the actions of all the key players, Iran and Iraq included, as in their repeated targeting of oil infrastructure and shipping." -- London Review of Books

Présentation de l'éditeur :

From 1980 to 1988 Iran and Iraq fought the longest war of the century. It included the tragic slaughter of child soldiers, the use of chemical weapons, the striking of civilian shipping, and the destruction of cities. Pierre Razoux offers an unflinching look at a conflict seared into the region's collective memory but little understood in the West.

Description du livre Hardcover. État : New. From 1980 to 1988, Iran and Iraq fought the longest war of the twentieth century. The tragedies included the slaughter of child soldiers, the use of chemical weapons, the striking of civilian shipping in the Gulf, and the destruction of cities.The Iran-Iraq War offers an unflinching look at a conflict seared into the region’s collective memory but little understood in the West. Pierre Razoux shows why this war remains central to understanding Middle Eastern geopolitics, from the deep-rooted distrust between Sunni and Shia Muslims, to Iran’s obsession with nuclear power, to the continuing struggles in Iraq. He provides invaluable keys to decipher Iran’s behavior and internal struggle today.Razoux’s account is based on unpublished military archives, oral histories, and interviews, as well as audio recordings seized by the U.S. Army detailing Saddam Hussein’s debates with his generals. Tracing the war’s shifting strategies and political dynamics—military operations, the jockeying of opposition forces within each regime, the impact on oil production so essential to both countries—Razoux also looks at the international picture. From the United States and Soviet Union to Israel, Europe, China, and the Arab powers, many nations meddled in this conflict, supporting one side or the other and sometimes switching allegiances.The Iran-Iraq War answers questions that have puzzled historians. Why did Saddam embark on this expensive, ultimately fruitless conflict? Why did the war last eight years when it could have ended in months? Who, if anyone, was the true winner when so much was lost?. N° de réf. du libraire 115056538
