The Great War in the Middle East began with an invasion of the Garden of Eden, and ended with a momentous victory on the siteof the biblical Armageddon. For the first time, the complete storyof this epic, bloody war is now presented in a single, definitivevolume.

In this inspired new work of history, Roger Ford describes theconflict in its entirety: the war in Mesopotamia, which would endwith the creation of the countries of Iran and Iraq; the desperatestruggle in the Caucasus, where the Turks had long-standing territorial ambitions; the doomed attacks on the Gallipoli Peninsulathat would lead to ignominious defeat; and the final act in Palestine, where the Ottoman Empire finally crumbled.

Ford ends with a detailed description of the messy aftermathof the war, and the new conflicts that arose in a reshaped Middle East that would play such a huge part in shaping world affairs forgenerations to come.
