As a great fan of T.E.Lawrence and having read many books about him, including Seven Pillars of Wisdom, I was keen to get more about him and the environment he was associated with. I gathered Allenby was an 'admirer' but needed to know more. This really was a truly excellent book by Lawrence James and I was delighted to learn more about T.E. L. and Allenby. The part of Allenby's life in the army before posting to the middle east was interesting. How good that he became 'unstuck' at Arras!
A powerful story of a powerful General written in the typically well researched and authoritative style of Lawrence James. Allenby, as General Wavell portrayed in his book 'A study in Greatness" reminds us how talented , and selfless the very greatest men of our IMPERIAL AGE proved to be.
