Book Description

This scarce book can best be described as a relatively modern air book about Iraq that integrates with the adventures of travel and a remarkably vivid survey of 5,000 years of history in Iraq & the Near East. Winston Churchill once famously dudded 'Iraq the Clapham Junction of the air.' It includes a Preface by His Excellency H E Sayid Ja'far al Askeri G.C.V.O., C.M.G.
