The great war for civilisation: The conquest of the Middle East - Robert Fisk

A sweeping and dramatic history of the last half century of conflict in the Middle East from an award-winning journalist who has covered the region for over thirty years, The Great War for Civilisation unflinchingly chronicles the tragedy of the region from the Algerian Civil War to the Iranian Revolution; from the American hostage crisis in Beirut to the Iran-Iraq War; from the 1991 Gulf War to the American invasion of Iraq in 2003.

How do we use mobi? Aren't these books available in any other format? Preferably, epub? PDF?

Mobi files are for Kindle. Converting them only takes a few seconds using a website like 2epub.com, so if you do convert it if you could upload the new files as well that would be great

EPUB/MOBI files usually convert back and forth pretty cleanly, there shouldnt be any loss of chapter divisions or anything.

But the passenger behind tapped me urgently on the shoulder. “Look!” he gasped, and pointed to his forehead. I looked at his face and could not understand. “Look!” he said more urgently and placed his right hand flat on top of his head, as if it was a hat. Hat. Yes, there was something missing from the Soviet Tajik soldiers’ grey fur hats. They had removed the red star from their hats. They stood looking at us, darker-skinned than their Russian comrades, bereft now of the communist brotherhood in which they had grown up.

I wonder if there was a mutiny brewing in the Soviet army during the invasion of Afghanistan?
