Approximately one-fifth of the earth's surface consists of desert, and throughout history these arid regions have witnessed some of the world's most decisive battles. Here, Bryan Perrett gives an absorbing account of desert conflicts from the first century BC to more contemporary conflicts such as those in Iran and Iraq. As he demonstrates, acclimatization and familiarization with the day-to-day problems of desert life are vital not only to teach troops how to protect themselves and their equipment, but also to bring them to terms with the harsh environment. The desert does not compromise, and battles fought there result in total victory or total defeat, often at horrific cost.

Initially released in 1988 by Patrick Stephens Limited, this re-issue marks a determination on the author's and the publisher's part to keep an esteemed publication in print.

As mentioned in

Lancashire & North West Magazine

First published in 1988 and again as a hardback in 2015, this book presents an account of desert conflicts from the first century BC to more contemporary conflicts such as those in Iran and Iraq. The author argues that whatever the period, the acclimatisation and familiarisation with the daily problems of desert life are vital not only to teach soldiers how to protect themselves and their equipment, but also to bring them to terms with the harsh environment. While the comments on the problems of desert warfare are certainly interesting enough in themselves, his detailed observations on such subjects as the Senussi War, Mesopotamia and the Arab revolt amongst others make compelling reading. Numerous monochrome illustrations are spread throughout the text; there are also 16 maps, a bibliography and an index.
