Lawrence of Arabia: The Genius of T.E Lawrence

Richard Allen

Witness the drama of World War I, which shaped the modern Middle East.

Imagine what happens when you double the adage that "one man can change the course of history" by four.

Imperial powers partitioned the Middle East into the nations we know today during and after World War I, and the region became the scene of several ongoing battles. In the midst of this chaotic period, the activities of four men - T. E. Lawrence, Curt Prüfer, Aaron Aaronsohn and William Yale, each on separate sides of the war, each with his own ambitions and sympathies - impacted the history of the region and the world.

The story of these four men and their endeavors in the Middle East during World War I are told in the following chapters. These stories read like a true John LeCarré thriller, complete with spies, lies, and evil intents. It also tells the tale of how the Middle East came to be one of the most politically unstable regions in the world.

This Book will provide information on

Why Lawrence's conquest of Aqaba turned out to be a bittersweet success; how Prüfer's ties in the Ottoman Empire influenced the Turks; and why the Sykes-Picot Agreement's effects are still being felt today.
