A Book on The Iran-Iraq War
Recently read a marvelous book about the Iran-Iraq War of 1980-8, namely The Iran-Iraq War by Pierre Razoux. It was originally published in French in 2013 and an English translation was released in November 2015.
If anyone wants to learn more about this topic this 644 page book will serve that purpose well. And because the author happens to be French there is a lot of discussion of events from a French perspective. He also details that many of the arms used in this war were purchased from outside Iran and Iraq.
