I'm sure it will come as no surprise to anyone who reads these that the first book that I've finished in 2015 would be an Osprey. To be exact, it was Osprey Men-At-Arms #194: Arab Armies of the Middle East Wars 2. Sometime in the last eighteen months I got a hankering to read up on all the Osprey books dealing with the Middle East, modern, and so I've read 'em as I could get 'em...this was the latest. It's pretty out-of-date, I'm afraid. Events have moved fast, and this book is some fifteen years old or so. For example, Hezbollah only gets about a sentence or so in the text. However, as background to the present situation, the book is a nice review. Not great, but not bad.
