The Armourer

Armies of the IranIraq War



This is number 239 in

Osprey’s Elite series and details the eight year conflict between Iran and Iraq. Having ground to a stalemate and UN sponsored ceasefire in 1988 it left Iraq massively in debt, leading to the invasion of Kuwait just a couple of years later. This book though, covers the action briefly, and concentrat­es on the armies involved, their uniforms, training and weaponry. There are contempora­ry photos and mediocre coloured pencil drawings plus a few maps to back up the informed but somewhat mundane text.
