The prevalence of child soldiers during Iran and Iraq's long war is a little known reality whose impact is felt until the present day. Thousands of boys, some said to have been as young as nine, fought alongside regular armed forces.
The experience was chilling. Thousands died in suicidal missions and on the front line. Echoes of the Iranian boy soldier experience can be heard in Iraq today with children being recruited by various sides in Iraq's current war against terror.
