1915: First Invasion of Iraq


The first invasion of Iraq by British in 1915

Sunday 29 April 2007, by Ben MACINTYRE

An attempt by a British force in 1915 to topple the regime in Baghdad ended in utter disaster. [*]

Armed with high-tech weapons and even higher expectations, a British Army marches on Baghdad to take control of the oilfields and topple a brutal regime.

Instead, the invaders get bogged down in the foetid marshes and broiling deserts; the enemy refuses to run away; soldiers perish in their thousands and Britain suffers one of its worst military defeats.
