I just wanted to bring to attention a decent docu thats been running on PBS America called The Iran-Iraq War: A Tragedy That Changed History.
This is a recent work and is a four parter. I’m currently into Part 2 and I’m quite impressed with it. The calibre of documentaries these days can be very changeable but the footage alone in this is worth the watch as it is brilliant- fantastic shots from both sides and some good interviews as well.
One of the advisers on the series is the French author Pierre Razoux who, at least to my knowledge, wrote the most recent book in English (although I believe it was originally published in French) on the war- it is a fantastic book in itself and worth the read if you are at all interested in this war. Good narration in the docu as well, by the English actor Samuel West.
