Often regarded as the best book ever published on Lawrence of Arabia. With access to most of the relevant documents relating to T.E. As well as papers controlled by Lawrence’s family and drawing also on unpublished records by people who knew and worked with him, the author has produced a thorough chronicle of Lawrence’s military and political achievements.

Review: There are many books about Lawrence – both biographies and narrower studies of particular parts of his career. If you only want to read one, this is the best option. It’s a detailed study, soberly – perhaps rather stodgily – written, resisting the rather tiresome obsessions of many of Lawrence’s biographers and the mythologising of film-makers. And you get the necessary detail of the political background, particularly around the GB-Sharifian negotiations, Sykes-Picot etc.                          

Jeremy Michael Wilson (1944 – 2 April 2017) was a British historian, biographer, writer, editor, and fine-press publisher. He was also a business copywriter and editor working for major corporations.
