The Life & Legend of Lawrence of Arabia

An Oxford Scholar and archaeologist, one of five illegitimate sons of a British aristocrat who ran away with his daughters' governess, Lawrence was sent to Cairo as an intelligence officer in 1916, vanished into the desert in 1917, and re-emerged as one of the most remarkable and controversial figures of the First World War.


A born leader, utterly fearless and impervious to pain or danger, Lawrence was not only a man of his times, but a visionary for the Middle East, who united and led the Arab tribes to defeat the Turks and capture Damascus.


In this magisterial story of an epic life on a grand scale, Michael Korda's Hero demystifies the legend of 'Lawrence of Arabia' to reveal the man - T. E. Lawrence - as he truly was.
