Details

In 1941, as the Allies struggled elsewhere, Axis forces were gaining Middle Eastern power through the Golden Square coup in Iraq, and the pro-Vichy Syrian regime. Broich tells how, with limited resources and manpower, a ramshackle coalition of militias, troops and individuals (including Roald Dahl and Freya Stark) improvised responses in battle zones including Fallujah, Baghdad and Damascus.
