"Review to follow, but so far this author is unique about Lawrenc"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

My general review of this book is excellent, inasmuch as, because of the author's previous first-hand knowledge of many aspects of life in the desert, he has told the story from a unique angle, which is vital jn order to portray an accurate picture of the situation. This is my first impression as I have not yet completed reading the book. I would therefore value the chance to further review this book when I have completed reading it… Jean Khan.


'The best life of Lawrence yet published' - The Express Lawrence was a brilliant propagandist, rhetorician and manipulator, who deliberately turned his life into a conundrum. But who was the real man behind the masks? Lawrence began the GreatWar as a map-clerk and ended it as one of the greatest military heroes of the 20th century. He altered the face of the Middle East, helped to lead the Arabs to freedom and formulated modern guerilla warfare. Yet he refused any honours and spent therest of his life in near obscurity. Desert explorer and Arabist, Michael Asher, set out to solve this riddle and discovers a hero whose greatness owed as much to his weaknesses as to his strengths.
