Lawrence of Arabia - the name conjures up swirling visions of desert sand and galloping camels, of epic victories and horrific personal sacrifices. But behind the heroic legend and the haunting images the reliable information is suprisingly scarce: Just who was T.E. Lawrence? In the pages of this book lies the answer - or, rather, the answers.

User Review  - Marc - Goodreads

User Review  - Scooter Chick - Goodreads

One of the better books about Lawrence, by his official biographer. However, that also means that some very personal sides of his character are not revealed or explored. Read full review
