IBNA-32 years after the liberation of Khorramshahr, a major southern west Iranian port, 117 books have been published which describe the Iranians’ efforts in retaking the city from the invading Iraqi military forces.

Khorramshahr was recaptured on May 24, 1982 during the war former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein imposed on Iran which is known by the Iranians as “sacred defense”? and lasted about 8 years. Later, documents provided by the international organizations ascertained that it was Iraq which starred a devastating war against Iran.
The liberation of the city marked a brilliant victory for the Iranian popular armed forces that completely destroyed two Iraqi Army divisions, as the stunned Saddam ordered some high-ranking Iraqi officers who were charged with fighting in the city to be executed.

The books published here on this historical event explore various issues including resistance of people in Khorramshahr, Operation Beit ul-Moqaddas which led to the retaking of this city after 578 days, analyses on the operation, the Iranian soldiers martyred for returning the city back to Iran and diaries of those Iranian combatants who fought in this operation.
Some of these books are as follows: ‘The Red Tale’ by Ebrahim Rostami, ‘Khorramshahr Reborn’ by Zohreh Shariati, ‘Khorramshahr Diaries’ by the martyr Behrouz Moradi, etc.
