Baba Nazar was an Iranian champion and wrestler who was well known among warriors with his strong and athletic body. He was born into a religious family. He spent his childhood with work and effort in his village. He was very interested in sports, especially in wrestling, and he won positions in this field. He was a virtue, believer, unobtrusive, and modest young man. With the onset of the war, he went to the front with his brother and participated in most of the combat operations.

He was shot by bullets and shrapnel shells more than 160 times. Upon the end of the war, he returned to the arms of the family. But the effects of injuries and shrapnel shells in his body forced him to travel to Germany in 1989 for treatment. In 1996, he was assigned a mission to visit the war zones in Kurdistan highlands. But due to cardiac arrest, he was martyred in Kurdistan’s highlands.

Book Expert:

Suddenly I saw one of the Iraqi tanks picking up from the other side and firing. The bullets hit in front of me. I rotated two and three meters on the air and hit the ground. My head became heavy. First I felt my head was separated from my body and because my body’s warm I can’t understand! The strange dust was dissipated. My signaler, called Jajarm, raised his voice and said, “Haji has not been martyred! Guys, go ahead. Haji has taken just a scratch. He gets up now and comes.” Suddenly, I saw Mr. Sadeghi and the battalion destroyer standing beside me.

Book Expert:

As soon as we were allowed to leave, like a bird released from a cage, we did not wait for a left sheet, and we came out with loose clothes. The bright sunlight did not allow blinking. We just sat in a corner inevitably in order that our eyes got accustomed to the light. Before a nurse saw and a doctor noticed us, we should go and sneak away. My hand in my friend’s hand and another hand on the wall, we went gropingly. It was a red situation and the siren sound was heard. We couldn’t see and we didn’t have a shelter. We trusted in God and continued on. The city was silent and slow. Only occasionally the sound of a car was heard but was lost very soon. There was no one to take our hands and take us to a safe place. O, God! Oh, helper the defenseless and the chemical injured! Witness the innocence of your blind servants and take care of us.

About the Book:

The book “Barefoot War” is a narrative of the war, the warriors who stood against armed to teeth enemy and bend over backward. In return to home, they get bored of the materiality of the society and continue to live in their huts against palaces of the rich in the lap of luxury. In his memoirs, the writer quotes the pain of those who have provided youth, health, and well-being, of themselves and their families for the Islamic revolution, but in return, they are subject to unkindness. In his memoirs, he described surrounding of warriors by Iraqi forces, breaking the surround with the sacrifice of one of the warriors, the martyrdom of the commander of the battalion, the situation of the wounded, the warming up, retreating, the situation and condition of all his companions in the combat operation, and their efforts and the memory of his companion martyrs. In the end, he speaks of his return to Tehran after accepting Resolution 598 and his normal life as a teacher.

This book has 24 stories and at the beginning of each story, there is a verse from the Quran that is related to the story. The writer portrays beautifully the hard life of the barefoot warriors alongside the colorful swampy life of the rich. The book is a reflection of the suffering of barefooted people, which, in comparison to the sacrifice of them, seems to be painful, bitter and unacceptable. In other narratives of this front, the most prominent and sweet thing is the humility and neglecting their works against the work of others who have tried and wore on other fronts but against the same enemy and for the love of God. Although the danger is not the same in all fields, they should not consider all those who were not present in the front as earthly people with earthy attachments, and they should not le the others down because of the trouble and suffering that they themselves have born for the sake of God. These traits are pure and the righteous. The book “Barefoot War” is written in the form of daily notes, but relies on narrative-fiction techniques.

Book Expert:

Here is Aqaba battalion. The main bath is here. Every day, the food car brings a number of guys to bathe here. Meanwhile, the reserve troop rests here. It is said that groups of Tehran citizens have come to visit the fronts, and a group will come here today. It is said that some chefs have also come to cook a meal for warriors.

She, along with his older brother, Ali, participated in the activities of the revolution and afterwards. For help and service, she chose the graveyard and burial and funeral of martyrs of war. On the first day, she becomes weak and faint. One of the peaks of the story is when she puts his martyred father in the grave and gave farewell to him. 7 days later, she put his older brother, who was also martyred, in the grave and gave farewell to him, a brother who had a lot of potential and actual abilities and was a favorite of the family. She hides her brother’s death from her mother to take her mother out of the city.

War City Stories

About the Book:

A soldier, after 11 years, wrote a letter to an Iraqi soldier, stating that their son, who had been a member of the Special Forces-23 of the Iraqi Presidential Guards, while escaping, was killed by their own forces and the Iranian soldier buried him, and he had saved the Iranian soldier while Iraqi forces were shooting.

The stories of this book are all realistic and have been narrated in two ways: one is by quotation or in the form of a second singular, and the other is the first person sometimes expressed as a dramatic soliloquy. Another feature of some of these stories is that they are narrative. In these stories, humans are equal in terms of individuality and position on both sides of the war. Ahmadzadeh is trying to create people who, apart from the political ideas and military conditions that put them against each other, have chosen humanity in their bottlenecks to overcome this difficult path. In this collection, we have come up with a unique writing style by Ahmadzadeh; using short, but uninterrupted sentences that connect with each other using simple conjunctions. This writing style, with suspense and excitement, brings the reader. Stories have concepts and thoughts other than the apparent subject, and they contain a simple and fluent prose and language. Themes are the other outstanding points of these stories. Also, the titles of some of the stories are worth attention, like “Thirty Nine and One Internees” and “Eagle’s Feather”, which can clarify the story for a typical audience who has not understood the underlying layer of the story. One of the other privileges of these stories is the plot of the stories, which have turned into a script because of their strong idea.

The book “War City Stories” contains 8 short stories and their titles are:

Eagle’s Feather – Airplane – Thirty-Nine and One Internees – Warrior Escape – A Letter to Saad’s Family – If There Was Not Darya Gholi – I Will Endure the Weight of This Load to the End – The Letter to the Writer to the American Military and Their Response.

About the Book:

At the beginning of the story, the narrator’s childhood days are narrated in her village. She was named “Ghadam Kheir” because she brought luckiness, and she was deeply concerned by her parents, Haji Agha and Shirin Jan, and she is more interested in her father than everybody. This interest made her not willing to get married and she was trying to get rid of marriage anyway. But the presence of Samad and his proposal to “Ghadam Kheir” and the mediation of the neighborhood elders suddenly bring this favorite teen girl to a much deeper and wider world than her children’s home. Before marrying Samad (whose original name is “Sattar”), Ghadam Kheir flees, again and again, his look, as if from the very beginning, separation and desolation have been destined in their fate. Samad joined military service. After marrying, he traveled from the village to Tehran for working but returned for a few days. Shortly thereafter, the Revolution of 1979 and the uprising of the people distanced between them. Then the war began and eventually the martyrdom separated them until Ghadam Kheir’s death. As if from the very beginning of her marriage, Ghadam Kheir had gone to her solitude home. In the various parts of the book, we observe her worry and impatience. However, she seems she has accepted her fate, accepted Samad’s absences and bad promises in the critical moments of her life, including the births of her children, although sometimes the life pressure comes out of her bearing, but for the sake of her children, she is resistant and firm and takes her life steering in the stormy ocean of the fate. The book “Daughter of Shina” is the memories of Ghadam Kheir Muhammadi, the wife of Martyr Sattar Ebrahimi. This book is the story of the love life of a rural girl living in the days of the war, and despite belonging to the literature of resistance and war, it is a work that narrates life with all its hardships and pleasures.

Book Expert:

I went to the kitchen. I turned on the water heater. He came and started telling, “The Iraqis have entered Khorramshahr. Khorramshahr has declined. We have had very martyrs. Abadan is surrounded by Iraqis and is under shots and mortars every day.” I asked. “Did you eat dinner?” He said, “No, I have no appetite.”

Some of the lunch had remained. I heated it for him. I spread out the tablecloth and put a bowl of yogurt and a plate of vegetables that the landlord had brought in the evening on the tablecloth, and served the meal for him. It was some Eshkeneh (Iranian meal). When he ate a little, his eyes became red. I asked, “Is it hot?”

Book Expert:

I wish you say what you do once for all! Are you the Quran teacher? Study engineering? Or are you Basiji? Mother talked to Mahmud in her mind. She asked, but did not hear any answer. Every time she saw him, her eyes illuminated and she smiled, but she was still worried about him in her heart. Thinking of seeing him leave tortured her. She became nervous and went standing in the yard with Quran and Espand. But this time, she wasn’t in the mood like previous times. She sat near the pool. She lingered and waited for Mahmud. But again she couldn’t tolerate. Her eyes fell on the plastic watering pot. She got up and wrapped her hands around the plastic watering pot hand, and watered the flower pots in the yard. But again she drowned in Mahmud’s imagination. Her restless minds reviewed childhood and adolescence of her son. Purl of water which was overflowing a pot and pouring on the stairs, brought her back to reality.
