Memoirs of Nasrollah Tavakoli : The 1st Chief of Staff of the Iranian Army After the Revolution
This book is both a memoir of Nasrollah Tavakoli's observations and role in the history of twentieth century Iran and a history of the Iranian people's struggle against foreign invasion. Because of his steadfast loyalty to Iran and its constitution, Colonel Tavakoli has been imprisoned seven times, both under the monarchy and under the Islamic Republic, the last time being for having defended the American Embassy in Tehran from attack at the dawn of the Iranian Revolution. In his memoirs, Colonel Tavakoli relates the inside details of the revolution, his assumption of the leadership of the Iranian military and his talks and relations with leaders of the new government including extensive meetings with the Ayatollah Khomeini.
