Product description

Book Description

The US-backed Kurdish YPG/SDF fought on the front line of the war against Islamic State for five years. This study reveals how they developed their own armoured force using captured tanks, homebuilt armour and 'technicals', and the role they played in the defeat of 'Daesh'.
