The Great War and the Middle East

Rob Johnson

  • The story of the First World War in the Middle East - now examined in its full operational and strategic detail for the first time
  • The conflict which swept away five hundred years of Ottoman rule to lay the foundations for the troubled Middle East that we know today
  • Argues forcefully that the war in the Middle East was no operational sideshow to the war in Europe, but the center of gravity for a war of imperial domination and prestige
  • Counters the persistent myth that local forces were mere puppets of the imperialist Great Powers
  • Shows how these local forces and their leaders were able to influence outcomes on the ground - and hence the shape of the region's problems in the years since
