Product Description

Publisher: Phoenix

Author: Adrian Greaves

This compelling biography uses primary sources and original research to uncover the truth about the legendary T.E. Lawrence, one of the most enigmatic characters in British history. At the outbreak of the First World War he was working as an archaeologist in the Middle East. With no military training and a strong distrust of politicians and senior officers alike, he succeeded in a task where they had failed: not only did he unite the Arab nation—which was at perpetual war with itself—but he also led them to victory against the once great Ottoman Empire. The truth about this mysterious personality is more compelling than fiction. (pb)
