North Iraq.jpg (1440932 bytes)Northern three/quarters of Iraq - unmarked
File size approx. 1.7MB



irbil detail.jpg (500005 bytes)Detailed aero map of the Irbil area - click to enlarge. (As noted by Col. T. E. Lawrence - even among the various tribes of Arabia, names of places and people are often spelled differently, especially when rendered into English. Irbil is as often found on maps and in references as Arbil.) The airfield occupied by a night-time airborne operation by elements of the 173rd Airborne Brigade supported by Special Ops teams on the ground may be the same strip found on the chart at BASHUA, to the northeast of IRBIL, where Nash Devon met the Canadian Peacekeepers' CC-130 and received the "Grain Moisture Analyzer," a disguised SATCOM transceiver, in the fictional plot of Desert Winds.

Go to the separate Iraq and Syria marked map pages to see the details of Nash Devon's travels in Desert Winds.

Caution - too close of an examination of the marked maps may give away more of the plot than you want to know before you have reached the end.
