Details

The 1914–1921 conflict in Iraq was a particularly inglorious episode in Britain’s imperial history. The post-war Arab revolt that followed was fuelled by resentment at the broken promises of independence that had won their wartime support, and was only defeated by a scorched earth policy. With Churchill and TE Lawrence among the central players, this is a vivid insight into the struggle, which was driven by greed for oil and territory.
