Product description

Review

'Packs as much punch as one of Lawrence's train-blowing explosives' Sunday Times 'Barr puts the story of the Arab revolt and Lawrence's heroics in a wider context. This broad canvas takes in two extraordinary years of war and scores of significant characters ... Barr has been diligent in his research' Sunday Times 'Barr's cogent, vividly written book puts Lawrence centre stage but does not lose sight of the uprising's larger historical context' Financial Times '[Barr] introduces fresh materials to give new context to Lawrence and the present difficulties in Iraq' The Times
