'Lawrence' Of Arabia: From Archaeologist To War Hero

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.
