The Military and Police Forces of the Gulf States: Volume 4: Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar 1921-1980 (Middle East@War) (Paperback)
The fourth volume of the Military and Police Forces of the Gulf States provides an in-depth examination of the security arrangements and forces of three Arabian Gulf states - Bahrain, Kuwait, and Qatar - during the period from the aftermath of the First World War up to 1980. Drawing on a wealth of exclusive photographs, color diagrams, and ORBATs, it presents a detailed analysis of the origins, structure, and equipment of their armed forces, police, and intelligence services.
By examining the historical development of these forces, this book sheds light on the transformation of each state's security arrangements from reliance on the ruler's tribal forces and retainers to professional security forces. This volume offers an invaluable reference source for academics, enthusiasts and researchers interested in the history, structure, and equipment of security forces in the Middle East.
