The Trucial Oman Scouts. The Story of a Bedouin Force
by Michael Mann

Very rare volume

by Michael Mann
hardback with dj minor bumping tot he spine, but otherwise nice copy

Octavo. Publisher's red boards, title gilt to spine. With the dust jacket. Very good in slightly rubbed, unclipped jacket. Sixteen plates, maps to the text, coloured pictorial endpapers after a painting of Jahili Fort, Buraimi by David Shepherd. First and only edition. Well-written account of the development of the unit originally formed as the Trucial Oman Levies, an armed gendarmerie, in 1951. The Buraimi Incident, followed by the Jebel Akhdar Campaigns in Oman led to an expansion into a fully equipped Bedouin brigade which was eventually absorbed into the Union Defence Force with the establishment of the United Arab Emirates in 1971. Relatively recently published, but almost unfindable.
