OVERVIEW

The Middle East has been the location of war since the Bible. The ancient Empires of Persia, Egypt, Alexander and Rome gave way to Byzantine and Ottoman Empire with the battles of the crusades to the formation of the Arab Kingdoms after the end of the Ottoman Empire; this is followed by the comparatively recent wars of trade and influence in the 19th Century and the World Wars of the 20th.
