The Iran-Iraq Military Conflict. Illustrated with B&W photographs. First in this edition. When President Saddam Hussein of Iraq attacked Iran on 22 September 1980 he expected victory within three weeks. Eight years and more than a million casualties later, the conflict ended with the same regimes in power – but after the fortunes of war had fluctuated violently and involved not just the Arab states of the Gulf but also the nations and superpowers of East and West. In describing the causes and courses of the war and its effects on the two antagonists – as well as the rest of the world – Dilip Hiro lays bare the intricate twists and turns of international diplomacy and reveals the realpolitik behind the rhetoric.
