Lawrence of Arabia: The Battle for the Arab World

T. E. Lawrence was one of history's most daring yet enigmatic figures. His early passion for medieval history drew him to Syria, where he became a British intelligence officer; increasingly sympathetic to the cause of Arab independence, he led a successful Arab attack on Turks and became a near-mythical figure. This biography draws upon eyewitness accounts to paint a poignant and dramatic tale of rare courage.
