The Actual Military Situation in the Middle East: From 1930’s-1970’s

Nabeel Jurdi, James Phelps


From 1945 to 1980 the Middle East experienced four major wars. Each one differed from its predecessor either in strategy, tactics, weaponry, or miscommunication. During those wars the Middle East conflict added other obstacles towards achieving a settlement. The continuing and increasing use of modern sophisticated weapons undoubtedly enhanced the start of new wars and ensured a continuation of the confrontations. It also ensured that the peoples of the Middle East remained in a state of constant insecurity while bringing the Super Powers into direct rivalry. This article examines the relationship between the military situations in the Middle East from the 1930’s to the 1970’s.  These forgotten and often ignored wars are essential basic studies for new students of Middle East history, military history, security, and intelligence to study if they are to learn from mistakes of their predecessors.  For faculty teaching about military conflict and Middle East studies having a grounded understanding of the Arab-Israeli wars is essential to comprehending the current state of affairs.
