Lawrence's story told through his own photographs, paintings, drawings, and ephemera, all supported by quotations from his mesmerizing firsthand account of his experiences.From the moment that Alexander Korda first set out to turn T. E. Lawrence's life into a movie not long after Lawrence's death in 1935 (a passion that only became a reality in the 1960s through other hands in Peter O'Toole's riveting performance), the mythic figure of the man on the camel enacting a heroic dream has captured the imagination of each succeeding generation.Now, seventy years after Lawrence's death and at a time when the Middle Eastern setting in which he acquired fame is constantly in the news, this visual biography takes us inside the mind of a man of extraordinary energy, ability, and charisma. Lawrence seemed to have everything in his hands, only to throw it all away and turn his life into an obsessive quest for anonymity and sanctuary.Fiercely ambitious, yet ambivalent about recognition, Lawrence had a brilliant academic career at Oxford before the First World War. Army intelligence work in Egypt in the early years of the war was the prelude to his participation in Emir Feisal's great Arab revolt against the Ottomans, fame at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919, and work with Winston Churchill after the war. But then came a relentless, restless, self-abasing search for obscurity under assumed names, followed by a mysterious motorcycle crash and death at the age of forty-six. 180 illustrations, 80 in color.

Saw the exhibit in London the book is based on and loved it. Book does a great job of covering the show and his life. Not just his time in WW 1. Easy to read with lots of photos.

I have been fascinated with T.E. Lawrence for most of my life. I'm a bit puzzled by it really, since I despise Britain's colonial meddling throughout the world and find war very distasteful, as well. I own Lawrence's "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" which is really the best source for learning about his life and work in the Middle East. There are other books out there which are biographical that contain far more substance than this book but the real treasure here is the many, many photographs taken by Lawrence himself. The photography in this book really gives you a sense of how he saw the world, beginning with his family until his death. This is more of a coffee table book, but worth having if you are an admirer of this very interesting man.

Being a die-hard Lawrencian for 30 years, I really enjoyed this companion book to the exhibit done at the Imperial War Museum in London. Malcom Brown does another fine job of locating photos, letters and information and then presenting them in chapters to represent different phases of T.E.'s life---there were even a few items that were new to me and enjoyed discovering something "new" after all these years.
I'd recommend this book as a fine introduction to the life of T.E.Lawrence for a first timer and if you're into T.E. then what are you waiting for---add this book to your collection.
If you get hooked then you'll have to read Malcom Brown's other Lawrence related books and see his BBC documentary as well.
