Mohammad Jahan-Ara: The patriotic war commander who lost his life while fighting for Khorramshahr's freedom.
Yep. Great memory.

Mohammad Jahan-Ara was the commander of local Sepah unit in Khorramshahr who organized the local defence against the marching Iraqi army. Under siege by Iraq, his small group of men held their lines for 40 days before Iraq finally broke through and took over Khorramshahr. Jahan-Ara was said to be among the last ones who evacuated the city.

He later participated in the battle for liberation of Abadan from Iraqi siege, and reportedly told his friends that he could not wait to take Khorramshahr back from Iraqis. He never made it. If I am not mistaken, he was killed in the crash of an army plane in 1360.

After liberation of Khorramshahr, his friends and comrades created this song in his memory to remember how much he loved to see the glorious day that Khorramshahr would be freed, and never did.

Reminded me of my own chidlhood, thanks for the post. Great yet sad to read.
I remember when the bombings got really bad, some of my family went to Mashhad, and others to Shahroud. The only person who stayed in Tehran was my grandfather who had spent his whole life in the military. We would phone him every day, and he would act as if nothing is wrong.

Great post BT jan! Also I remember the big fat tapes they usually put on all windows!

I have more or less the same story! Although when we went to this village, I was older so I was running around, hunting the village girls! lol ;)

Actually we and some other relatives lived in a same place and they had kids around my age so I was never alone. I also didn't wanna go home because it was much more fun to be there than going to school everyday! :D

deerouz jan, are you sure about this??? I thought Iraqis took over Khoramshahr in a matter of a day?

nice post BT..I was 4 years old during that period. All I knew was that pretty often lights went out and we had to go down to our basement. My granduncles house was hit by a missile. His story is that some "ghost" told him to go out of the house inside the "hayat" and a few seconds later a missile hit.

Mohammad Jahan-Ara: The patriotic war commander who lost his life while fighting for Khorramshahr's freedom.

Yes indeed. He was the commander of revolutionary gaurds in Khurramshahr when iraq invaded Iran.(R gaurds then were not the type of politically deviated force we know they are now)
Close to 100 of local youngsters and people who could join them from other parts of Iran, almost non of them with professional military experience, resisted in the surrounded city for almost 2 months against mechanized army of iraq. They only had some J3 rifles and two RPG7 s plus their bravery and love for Iran.
IRIB used to show real reportage of their fights in first few months of the war. They were amazing fighters.

i grew up in ahvaz so we went throught this shit way before 1987. for fun we used to collect bullet shells or canon shells. when they started bombing tehran we would notice the iraqi planes would come over ahvaz and not drop any bombs.
