THE IRAN-IRAQ WAR VOLUME 3: IRAQ'S TRIUMPH

by E. R. Hooton & Tom Cooper

The Iran-Iraq War was one of the bloodiest conflicts of the 20th Century and accidentally created the current nightmare of Islamic fundamentalist terrorism. There have been many books on the conflict but this is the first detailed military history using materials from both sides, as well as materials obtained from US Intelligence circles and British Governmental archives. It provides a unique insight into a war which began through miscalculation and rapidly escalated into the longest conventional conflict in the post-Second World War era. This third volume covers the last two years of the war on the Southern front, where Iranians made their last supreme effort to break through Iraqi lines during the winter of 1986-1987. Iraqi defences just about held. For a year, there was an ominous silence, but then Iraq launched a series of devastating blows that recovered the Faw Peninsula, pulverised weakly-occupied Iranian positions, and drove the frontlines back to the international border. Iran was left with no option but to sue for peace.

THE IRAN-IRAQ WAR VOLUME 4: THE FORGOTTEN FRONTS

by E. R. Hooton & Tom Cooper


Part 4 in this mini-series covers the warfare between Iran and Iraq on the Central and Northern Fronts. Difficult terrain made it problematic for either side to assemble overwhelming superiority. Following initial Iraqi attacks that seized some territory, the Iranians began gradually nibbling back until achieving some success in the centre, in 1982. Subsequently, the Central Front saw only minor conventional battles until Iraq launched several major blows in 1988. In the north, fighting primarily revolved around several Kurdish insurgencies in northern Iraq, and culminated in the horror of the Halabcheh gas attack. The final campaign of the war saw Iraq-supported Iranian emigres launching a spectacular, but also a swiftly-crushed, invasion of their homeland.

by Adrien Fontanellaz & Tom Cooper

Ethiopia is a military powerhouse of the African continent. Currently involved in the war in neighbouring Somalia, Ethiopia was also involved in half a dozen of other armed conflicts during the last 60 years. One of the most significant was the Eritrean War of Independence. Fought 1961-1991, this was one of Africa's biggest armed conflicts , and it included a wide spectrum of operations, from   classic counter-insurgency (COIN) to conventional warfare. This second volume covers the military operations that led to the fall of the Derg government in Ethiopia of 1991, the period of Eritrean military build-up, and concludes with the first detailed account of the so-called Badme War, fought between Ethiopia and Eritrea in 1998-2001. The book contains over 100 contemporary photographs, maps and colour profiles.

MOSCOW'S GAME OF POKER:
                             RUSSIAN MILITARY INTERVENTION IN SYRIA, 2015-2017

by Tom Cooper




Russian Military Intervention in Syria, 2015-2017. In August 2015, the government of the Russian Federation embarked its military forces on an intervention in Syria. Their performance in this war was a clear demonstration of advanced technology, improved training and fearsome firepower, but the operation only experienced limited success and exposed a number of weaknesses. Illustrated by over 130 photographs, maps and 21 colour profiles, ‘Moscow's Game of Poker’ provides a clear outline of the participants in this complex conflict, and the areas it impacts. The story is told in combination with an insight into the similar campaign run by what is left of the Syrian Arab Air Force.
