Abstract

Drawing on archival sources and incorporating new archaeological evidence, in Lawrence of Arabia’s War: The Arabs, The British and The Remaking of the Middle East in WWI, Neil Faulkner presents a multi-dimensional account of the conflict in the Middle East during the First World War with the centralised figure of T.E. Lawrence providing the skeletal narrative. While Mahon Murphy finds this a vividly written attempt to understand the totality of the conflict, he questions whether the focus on Lawrence obscures some of the study’s more interesting strands of analysis.
