Eden To Armageddon: World War I The Middle East

Roger Ford

Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, General & world history

Turkey, the First World War and the making of the Middle East.

The Great War in the Middle East began with the invasion of the Garden of Eden and ended with a momentous victory on the site of the biblical Armageddon. Almost incredibly, the whole story of this epic war has never been told in a single volume until now.

In this important new history Roger Ford describes a conflict in its entirety: the war in Mesopotamia, which would end with the creation of the countries of Iran and Iraq; the desperate struggle in the Caucasus, where the Turks had long-standing territorial ambitions; the doomed attacks on the Gallipoli Peninsula that would lead to ignominous defeat; and the final act in Palestine, where the Ottoman Empire finally crumbled.

He ends with a detailed description of the messy aftermath of the war and the new conflicts in a reshaped Middle East that would play such a huge part in shaping world affairs for generations to come.
