   A Short History of Moroccan Armed Forces by Abdul- Haq Al-Merini has been reviewed by Lieutenant Commander Youssef H. Aboul- Enein of the U. S. Navy in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Military Review January-February 2004 P 75-79. From the review: “Al- Merini begins his book, which is enthralling from beginning to end, by discussing the frustrations Roman legions faced while pacifying Moroccan tribesmen. He mentions the importance of Moroccan tribes in the Islamic expansion beginning in A. D. 711 and concludes with Morocco’s roles in World War II, Operation Desert Storm, and peacekeeping operations in the Congo, Somalia, and the Balkans. Understanding the Moroccan military will help further the relationship between U. S. and Moroccan Armed Forces, particularly as both nations are committed to battling Islamic militancy and terrorism.
