    Story
    (257)

    In a cloak-and-dagger story of spies, saboteurs, and secret agents, Kinzer reveals the involvement of Eisenhower, Churchill, Kermit Roosevelt, and the CIA in Operation Ajax, which restored Mohammad Reza Shah to power. Reza imposed a tyranny that ultimately sparked the Islamic Revolution of 1979 which, in turn, inspired fundamentalists throughout the Muslim world, including the Taliban and terrorists who thrived under its protection.

    amazonman says: "Fascinating & Insightful View of US/ Iran History"
    "Good story, over dramatized."
    Overall

    This was a good story and helps one to understand a part of history between the US and Iran. It was a rich story in and of itself, though overdramatized by the author which eventually distracted me for the story itself.

    Worth a listen, though I wouldn't get it again.
