'Lawrence' Of Arabia: From Archaeologist To War Hero

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Nothing much that hasn't been written of before.

    No mention of the competition going on between the Indian Office and the Foreign Office for control on Arabia; nothing of Lawrence's approach to guerilla warfare of bottling up the Turks in Medina while you go about being beastly elsewhere; claiming that Aqaba was about promoting the Arabs to independence when it was more about providing a convenient port for resupplying them.

    Don't think I will be buying the book.
