Book Description

Biography of RaphaelKhan: Great Assyrian Leader tells the long overdue true-life story of the renowned World War I Assyrian hero who fought on the side of the Allies (Britain, France and Russia) against the Ottoman Empire.

Biography of RaphaelKhan is a thrilling read, and an eye opener to a part of history from wartime Urmia/Persia, Hakkari/Turkey and mass exodus to Mesopotamia (Bet-Nahrain), and the final attempt to regain back the ancestral homelands. It's about survival of the small Assyrian nation, once 'Mighty Assyrian Empire' — the cradle of civilization — struggling to preserve its national identity against the evils of aggression and massacres perpetrated during WWI events (1914-1918).

The Assyrians and Armenians have suffered massive genocide over the last centuries. The Assyrians have lost control of their ancestral lands and are in a struggle for survival. Today, the Assyrian nation stands at a crossroad.
