First images of the operation were showed, photos that had not been published in any media. Members of Army 10 of Seyed Al-Shohada had brought the images.

The reminiscent books

Along with “Hemmat, the Legendary Man” and “With Iranians Injured by Chemical Weapons”

The book section of Iranian Oral History Website has reviewed two books in the last days of the Iranian year 1395 SH (2016-17) which have been published this year. The feature of both books is that they are reminiscent. They are reminiscent of the characters and individuals who are the legacy of the Sacred Defense. The books writers (one Iranian and the other Japanese) somehow remind us how we have looked at them.

History Scholars to Maintain a Critical Approach

Approaches on Rationalization

Looking at books published on various categories including “Oral History”, “Oral Memoirs”, “Memories” and their approach in rationalization, content volume used to rationalize and references made, we see significant differences all starting from ground zero. In some cases, the volume of footnotes and end-notes presented in the last chapter of the book exceed the main body of content! In case such approach has a scientific backbone then it is good; however, there is hardly an affirmative reason.
