Editorial Reviews

Review

Assiduously researched and sensitively written, Persian Gulf Command offers us a fascinating new perspective on the Second World War-its impact on local societies in the Middle East and the paths to post-war intervention by the West.

-- "Richard J. Aldrich, author of The Black Door"

In this lucid work, filled with telling details and well-crafted arguments, Jackson has finally revealed the undoubted significance of Iran and Iraq to the wider war.

-- "Niall Barr, author of Eisenhower's Armies"

Narrator Steven Crossley's clear voice and impeccable enunciation are a most suitable match to Jackson's well-written account...Crossley really is the consummate professional in general, and with this work in particular. His accent, inflection, enunciation, and overall expression are virtually flawless. He makes it all seem so easy and makes it a joy to listen to this long work.

-- "AudioFile"

Splendid...Ashley Jackson skillfully brings together the complex range of developments that took place in Iraq and Iran during the Second World War. His book combines thorough research, lucid analysis and colorful description.

-- "Evan Mawdsley, author of December 1941" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
