Publish Date : Thursday 7 June 2012 - 15:49
Recollections of Brigadier General Hussein Hassani Sadi, Deputy Armed Forces General Staff, of Iraq-imposed war on Iran will be published.
Mohsen Sadeghnia is preparing the book through the oral history interviews he has carried out with the general about his memories of the war time. Organization of cadets on the beginning days of the war is a part of his memories.
In an interview with IBNA, Sadeghnia called Hassani Sadi the living history of Sacred Defense and said, “He has never attended any interviews for publication of books about his war memories. However, with the help of Colonel Mojtaba Jafari, head of the Organization of Nezaja Veterans, and Colonel Ali Sadjadi, we have arranged 13 interview sessions with the general.”
He said that the book will include Sadi’s childhood memories until the present time. “Hassani Sadi is one of the most faithful and revolutionary commanders who downed membership in Shah's military intelligence agency,” he added.
Writer of the Sweet Atonement went on to say that Gen. Sadi has a lot to say about the 81 Armored Division of Kermanshah where he served which will be published in his memoir.
He further mentioned the friendly relationship between martyrs Seyyed Moosa Namjoo, Yousof Kolahdouz and Hussein Hassani Sadi before the victory of the Islamic Revolution in the army. “After the victory of the Revolution, martyr Namjoo presided over the military college and Sadi was appointed as the Brigade Commander of the college.”
He went on to mark Sadi’s role in organization of cadets and sending them to the war fronts as the war broke out in southern parts of the country. “He assumed the organization of Arvandrood and Abadan camps. The resistance of cadets during the first three months of the war hindered Iraqis’ progress in Iranian territories.”
Manager of Soreye Sabz Publications further added that Sadi held various posts in Iran’s military during the Sacred Defense including the commandership of 21 Hamzeh Seyyed-o-Shohada Division and commandership of the ground forces of the army succeeding martyr Sayyad Shirazi.
“Furthermore, as the commander of Nasr Camp, he was an effective element in crucial operations such as Fatholmobin and Beitolmoghadas. He accompanied martyr Hassan Bagheri in several operations and has many interesting memories about him.”
Sadi is currently engaged with the recording of his memories since his childhood. His memories will also encompass his army service prior the Islamic Revolution, the outbreak of the war and Beitolmoghadas operation.
