CRRC hosting book presentation of Pesach Malovany's "The Wars of Modern Babylon"...
The Conflict Records Research Center (CRRC) is hosting a book presentation by retired Israeli Colonel Pesach Malovany on his award-winning book, The Wars of Modern Babylon, on the Iraqi military.
The event will take place on Tuesday, November 1, 2011 from 1300-1400.
The Wars of Modern Babylon traces the entire 82-year history of the Iraqi army from 1921 to 2003, and offers insights into the events that led to the collapse of Saddam Hussein’s regime. COL Malovany describes the Iraqi army’s wars and its participation in the struggles against Israel. At the heart of the book is a detailed portrayal and analysis of Saddam Hussein’s three major wars: the War against Iran during 1980–1988, the 1990- 1991 Gulf War, and the final campaign in 2003 that led to the downfall of his regime.
COL Malovany served in the Military Intelligence of the Israeli Defense Forces and retired as a full colonel. Among other responsibilities, throughout his military service he specialized in the Iraqi armed forces and their performance in the era of the Ba’ath rule and Saddam Hussein.
Renowned Israeli scholar Dr. Amatzia Baram will participate as a discussant. Dr. Baram is a professor in the Department of the History of the Middle East and director of the Meir and Miriam Ezri Center for Iran and Persian Gulf Studies at the University of Haifa. Mr. David Palkki, CRRC Deputy Director, will chair the event.
