9780747585534: Setting the Desert on Fire: T.E. Lawrence and Britain's Secret War in Arabia, 1916-18
Críticas:

'Packs as much punch as one of Lawrence's train-blowing explosives' Sunday Times 'Barr puts the story of the Arab revolt and Lawrence's heroics in a wider context. This broad canvas takes in two extraordinary years of war and scores of significant characters ... Barr has been diligent in his research' Sunday Times 'Barr's cogent, vividly written book puts Lawrence centre stage but does not lose sight of the uprising's larger historical context' Financial Times '[Barr] introduces fresh materials to give new context to Lawrence and the present difficulties in Iraq' The Times

Reseña del editor:

It is 1916. The Allies are struggling in the Great War. The Ottoman Sultan calls for a pan-Islamic jihad against all non-Muslims except Germans. But Sharif Husein, ruler of the holy city of Mecca, is smarting under Turkish rule, fomenting Arab nationalism and lobbying the British to support him. It seems to the British a good idea secretly to encourage an Arab revolt. "Setting the Desert on Fire" is a masterly account of this key moment made legendary by T. E. Lawrence, but here filled with a wide range of characters including the British Prime Minister Lloyd George, whose desire to capture 'Jerusalem by Christmas' had consequences that reverberate to this day.
