The war sociology explores war and its influential factors meticulously. Such a study reveals itself at the level of causes and factors affecting the beginning of wars, the phenomenon of war and its consequences. One of the important war of Sassanian was the Yemeni War, which led to the Sassanian dominance over this country until the end of its governance. In this war, Wehrez, who was an arrested Deylami Commander incarcerated in the Anoushiravan’s Prison, employed a strategy in two phases of pre-war and during the war with his few forces to defeat Habashi forces who were dominant over Yemen, and finally, the employment of this strategy led to the success of Sassanian forces. This study demonstrates how Habashi forces despite having a large number of forces were defeated by a small force. Moreover, it seeks to explore the wars of Iran and the Arabs using a sociological approach. The sociological study of war is a kind of scientific research for scrutinizing the military systems of the two sides and finally finding the reasons for their failure and victory in the war. In this type of perspective, the military structure of the two sides will be analyzed and the influential factors of the war outcomes will be determined through it. Regarding the purpose, this study is a theoretical one, and with regard to the nature and the method, it is a historical one, which was conducted using a descriptive-analytical method.
