The defence of the Arabian Gulf has been a vital concern for almost 100 years. The British became involved in the Gulf to protect the sea routes to India and with the development of international air routes, the Gulf became a crucial staging post. This book surveys the strategic issues in the defence of the Gulf from the earliest British involvement up to Iraq-Iran war.
