Summary
  • The acclaimed author of the "New York Times"-bestseller "Ike" returns with a definitive new biography of the legendary British scholar, adventurer, soldier, and hero who became a myth in his lifetime--T.E. Lawrence, Lawrence of Arabia
  • The story of an epic life on a grand scale: a revealing, in-depth biography of the extraordinary, mysterious, and dynamic Englishman whose daring exploits and romantic profile--including his blond, sun-burnished good looks and flowing white robes--made him an object of intense fascination, still famous the world over as "Lawrence of Arabia." An Oxford scholar and archaeologist, Lawrence was sent to Cairo as a young intelligence officer in 1916. He vanished into the desert in 1917 only to emerge later as one of the greatest--and certainly most colorful--figures of World War One. As Korda shows, Lawrence was not only a man of his times; he was a visionary whose accomplishments--farsighted diplomat and kingmaker, military strategist of genius, perhaps the first modern "media celebrity" (and one of the first victims of it), and an acclaimed writer--transcended his era.--From publisher description
