    Often forgotten except for the legend of Lawrence of Arabia, the critical Middle Eastern theater of WWI is thoroughly chronicled in this meticulous military history. Ford surveys all the major campaigns in the Allied?mainly British?waragainst the Ottoman Empire, from the invasion of Mesopotamia to the climactic battle of Megiddo in Palestine. A microcosm of the larger war, the story includes a seesaw struggle between the Turks and Russians in the Caucasus, bloody trench warfare on the Gallipoli peninsula, a rare successful British cavalry charge near Gaza, and a pervasive air of futility as best-laid plans go tragically awry. For those interested in war, 'Eden to Armageddon' is a sure-fire winner. Kindle Price: $9.89
