Seven Pillars of Wisdom remains, like its enigmatic creator brilliant and controversial. One of the major statements about fighting experience of the First World War, it describes the revolt in Arabia against the Turks, as it appeared to an Englishman who took part. Around this chronicle Lawrence has strung together an unexampled fabric of portraits, descriptions and philosophies, emotions, adventures and dreams, recreating epic events with extraordinary vividness. This book is history, travel literature, autobiography all combined into one. About the Author: Born in 1888, T.E. Lawrence studied at Oxford. In 1911 he joined the British Museum excavations in northern Syria. After the First World War broke out, he was posted to Cairo as an intelligence officer. From there, in late 1916, he travelled Hejaz to asses the leadership and prospects of Arab Revolt. His subsequent liaison role between the British and the Arab forces is described in Seven Pillars of Wisdom. Later, he enlisted in the ranks of the RAF where he served over twelve years.
