"Blood, Oil, and the Axis is a war story that fits well into the larger narrative of World War II, showing how colonialism shaped numerous conflicts in the Middle East and tracking the emergence of future movements there. It's a worthy, informative, and enjoyable history of the war, highlighting an often overlooked aspect of the conflict."--Foreword Reviews
