Mahmoud Reza Beyzaei was born in Tabriz on December 8, 1981, in a religious family. According to his brother, when he was a student he joined to Tabriz Martyr Babai’s Resistance Center. Ahmad Reza says on page 11 of book:" Martyr Mahmoud Reza Beyzaie believed in the most important idea of Imam Khomeini (RA), namely the formation of the Islamic world government. His religious and political studies were not interrupted and he was well acquainted with the Arabic language and the Iraqi and Syrian accent. Beginning war in Syria in 2012, he traveled to Syria to help the Front of Resistance and to defend the All al-Allah (PBUH). In his latest dispatch, he told one of his comrades: "This trip is irreversible!" In fact, two months before he was sent to Syria, as if he was inspired by him, he sought to coordinate his place for burial and funeral. Finally, after two years attended on the Syrian war, in the year of the Prophet (PBUH) and Imam Jafar al-Sadiq (AS)[3], He was martyred by explosive trap quivers in the head and chest, while commanding an operational area named Qasemiyah in  southeast of Damascus.

The next title of the book, "The Warrior of Cultural War" narrates his brother's attention to culture and warfare from adolescence.

Subsequent titles are "Guard for Guard" and "He was grateful person", respectively, which illustrate the simplicity of the martyr defender and his hospitality. Subsequent titles are "Suicide like Drinking Water", "Very Clear" and A Hardworking Man". The martyr's brother narrates in this section that Mahmoud Reza was not a lazy man, he was true even on his last trip to Syria, where he went to the war with a lot of back pain and was martyred in an operation in which he did not wear a bulletproof vest because of his back pain the weight of the vest. After these titles, we come up with two other short headlines titled "He painted all of us and went" and "The Strange Sense of Brotherhood." Martyr's brother says: Although I was older than him, it was as if my soul and heart always accepted Mahmoud Reza as my older brother. He used to kiss my shoulder on the Basij's habit. In the following title "He Likes Analyzing" it mentions his interest in reading the newspaper and he was a professional newspaper reader, attending weekly meetings with Hossein Shariatmadari, the editor-in-chief of Kayhan newspaper, and invited me to attend in meetings. In title "Living with Martyrs", his passion for martyrdom is depicted. The "wish to fight in Karbala" is about the interest of the defender martyr to teach Iraqi youth to fight the US. On page 44 of the same title, Mahmoud Reza's brother says:" I asked Mahmoud Reza: "Do the Iraqis forces, and consequently the Iranians only fight with these hand-made explosive devices." And he replied without hesitation: "The Americans have been so killed that the US’s troops have stayed in their barracks and so-called nests. The Americans asked Haj Qassem to lower the fire! Then we read the titles of "Filmmaker" and "Beaten Israel". On page 47, Ahmad Reza Beyzaei says he has asked his brother: "where is it known that Israel will not attack Lebanon again?"

On page 91 of the book Another Interesting Memories of Syria is narrated, which is a direct quotation of oral history and memoirs of defending soldiers: "We were on the overpass and I saw a suspicious car was exploded and then it turned out that it was going to kill us."
