One of the few books on the subject, Bruce Westrate's The Arab Bureau brilliantly details the people, organizations and events that went into the creation and running of a little known but vital offices in the British government during World War I.
A must read for anyone interested in the political and military history of the Arab Revolt specifically and World War I in general.

Page viii - Against the sea we fear—not man's award. They that dig foundations deep, Fit for realms to rise upon, Little honour do they reap Of their generation, Any more than mountains gain Stature till we reach the plain.
