Part of the text of the workbook is the work of the English
A decade before World War I, with the Constitutional Revolution, hopes were revived that were all dashed by the Shah. Because the “thugs” wanted to regain the authoritarian power they had lost.

It was a relatively better period than the catastrophic period that Iran experienced during the war, and of course the greatest blame lay with Britain.

Iran was officially neutral in the war, but that did not mean it could stay away from it. The lack of a large defense force with good weapons that could defend itself against the aggressor turned Iran into a war zone.

The Ottomans were at war with Russia. Russian forces entered Iran through Mashhad and even reached Tehran after Qom and Hamedan. Large numbers of British troops (mostly Indian) headed to the area to occupy the south and southwest and protect the British crude oil fields and refinery.

In addition, Britain formed a pistol force in southern Persia. A force of 15,000 pro-British tribes formed under the command of British officers.
