A very interesting book that shows the entanglement between state and private enterprise in the US who apparently signed a Devil's Pact to make money out of war. Also war has always generated money and made some people richer and the great many poorer and more desperate, the level to which Halliburton has pushed its profit making is extremely shocking.
Especially the involvement of the Iranian Palewi monarchy into the WWII Lend and Loan to the USSR was a novelty to me. I was not aware of the difficulties faced by the US military mission during convoying operations. Furthermore, the author provides essential détails appealing to the serious scolar of military history during the Iranian army's upgrad phase under Mohamad Reza Phalewi in the 1980ies. I am a great amateur of scientific and serious books in audioformat and I especially appreciated the great diction of the speaker. I recommend this audiobook and I will acquire a print copy of the work for my military affairs collection most certainly. An excellent job well done by a highly knowledgable scholar. Unfortunatelly I am unable to appreciate the impact of the author's employer's (CIA) redactional impact.
If you want the complete history of Gulf I in all its détails, this is the book/audiobook. As usual Atkinson does remarkable researchwork and tells the story from A to Z. Like all his books a must for everybody interested in concise military history. The Plus is: It is also interesting to listen to as an audiobook...not an Andy McNab or Frederick Forsyth, but captivating enough for a serious book to keep the listener scotched to his/her mp3-player.
