About this book

The Glubb Reports studies papers written by General Sir John Glubb, the long-serving British commander of the Jordanian Arab Legion. It covers issues such as the role of tribes and desert control, the impact of Palestine, the Arab Legion's role in the first Arab-Israeli war, the expansion of the Arab Legion, and Glubb's dismissal in 1956.

Reviews

“The Glubb Reports offers insight into how Glubb’s ideas of Middle Eastern politics formed and changed over time, particularly his views of tribes, military modernization, and the partition of Palestine. … Bradshaw precedes each chapter with a relatively detailed synopsis of Glubb’s views contained in each document, with additional context pulled from other documentary and secondary sources. … Tancred Bradshaw has provided an excellent introduction for other scholars to continue the work and probe Glubb’s history more thoroughly.” (Gregory Brew, H-War, networks.h-net.org, July, 2016)
