Absolutely Superb - and Different!
on 30 June 2012
A quite splendid biography of Lawrence - very readable, and not just a repeat of so much that has gone before. A lot of books on Lawrence reveal little, if anything, new about him but Korda approaches his subject from different perspectives, and gives a lot of very interesting background information relating to the war, and other world events from the period. I have many books about Lawrence (about eighteen, I think) but no other book is as well written, fascinating, and informative as this one (and I include the authorised biography in my comparisons).
Very highly recommended - even if you have other books about TEL, you will find this book very well worth reading - and extremely easy and enjoyable to read, not in the least dry and dreary.
