Islamic State’s Holy War


Anthony Tucker-Jones

Pen & Sword Military, 2018

The author is a well-published former defence intelligence analyst. The grim subject is strangely rather poorly covered by recent publishing, so any new title is to be welcomed.  This is a slim volume (128pp), but well illustrated with black and white photos.


Whilst it comprehensively narrates the story of this latest Islamic threat to global security, the analysis seemed at times somewhat meagre.
