First words
The story of United States Army activity in the Persian Corridor during World War II has a central theme, supply. Its major development, lend-lease aid to the Soviet Union, grows out of its minor, lendlease aid to Great Britain in supplying Russia and in preparing against threatened Axis invasion of the area. The fighting war, the war of guns, is but a muted obbligato to the central theme. The strategic unity of the Middle East and its vital importance to the final victory, the bloody struggle to fend off Axis drives toward Suez and the oil fields of Iraq and Iran, of Saudi Arabia and the Caucasus-these are high themes, but not the subject of this book.
