WWII weapons in the Ayatollah’s Iran

This is one of those conflicts I really should know more about than I do.  I’ve got this Osprey Publishing book  (IIRC it’s that one) that I read about 10 years ago but that’s it.  I’m thinking I need to add this to my list of things to study…

Long read but well worth it: WWII weapons in the Ayatollah’s Iran

The war between Iran and Iraq started in 1980 when Saddam Hussein sought to take advantage of Iran’s chaos by conquering and annexing Iran’s oil-rich Khuzestan province, and in the larger sense, destroying the Iranian Islamic regime’s military. In turn, the Iranians sought to first repulse the Iraqi attack and then knock Hussein out of power and replace him with an Iraqi theocratic government modeled on Iran’s.The war ended up lasting eight years and was one of the worst of the 20th century. For the most part, Iran employed high-tech systems like the MIM-23 Hawk SAM and AH-1 Cobra attack helicopter, but there were some WWII weapons in Iran’s use as well.
