Publisher's Summary

Colorful characters, a larger-than-life hero, stirring battles, death-defying desert treks, and an adventure rich in mystery and romance, are all depicted by a great writer. That and more is what readers will find in this spellbinding biography of Lawrence of Arabia that is impossible to put down. Best-selling author and screenwriter Alistair MacLean follows Lawrence as he breaks with tradition to live with Arabs and, using modern-day guerrilla tactics, helps them defeat the Turks and gain an independent state. In addition to the enthralling details of the campaign, MacLean provides valuable insight into the origins of the Middle East we know today.

Factually incorrect: e.g. Churchill asking The Indian Government for permission to give Mesopotamia to the Arabs in 1918 and other factual inaccuracies. It all ends happy and smiling however the general concencus is that Lawrence was broken by his failure to deliver on a promise. His cottage, story, and books leave a broken but phenomenal legacy. You're better off watching the PBS documentary on YouTube for more detail and entertainment.
