A review of Jacob Even and Simcha B.
Hi all. Thank you for including me in the conversation. My name is Nick Waddy, and I teach European and African history at SUNY Alfred. My bread and butter course is Western Civ Since 1648, of which I teach multiple sections every semester. I also teach upper-level classes in African history and 20th century military history.
"it failed utterly at Vietnamizing the war"
So the repulse of the Easter Invasion by the huge conventional force equipped with 400 tanks, hundreds of Russian artillery, hundreds more AA guns, etc, didn't happen?

As long as we provided the supplies and support, that is.
Dear List Members,
I am currently trying to put together a conference which ideally should take place at Hamadan (Iran) in autumn this year (2018).
The subject will be the First World War in central and western Iran (1914-18), ideally with an attention not only to politics and high strategy, but also to the reality on the ground (small-scale fighting between Russian and German-Ottoman forces in Kurdistan and Lorestan, and between German and Anglo-Russian forces in central Iran).
