    As Angus Calder states in his introduction to this edition, 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom is one of the major statements about the fighting experience of the First World War'. Lawrence's younger brothers, Frank and Will, had been killed on the Western Front in 1915. Seven Pillars of Wisdom, written between 1919 and 1926, tells of the vastly different campaign against the Turks in the Middle East - one which encompasses gross acts of cruelty and revenge and ends in a welter of stink and corpses in the disgusting 'hospital' in ...

Rediscovering a classic

by oddjohn on Jul 15, 2010

Recently I was reminded of this book while reading a history of wartime deception in military tacics. I remembered reading about T.E. Lawrence's "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" when I was younger. This book is a glance back at history not seldom discussed in contemporary education. A great read.

Finding an old friend

by NOLA on Sep 4, 2008

I adore this book. Many years ago when I was 13 years old, I found a copy of this in a wonderful old book store. I kept it for 40 years, picking it up from time to time and finding things I'd missed or was too young to understand the first time I read it. Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent levee failure brought over 5 feet of water into my house. I lost about two thirds of my books. I had put them up, but never expected so great a flood. Slowly, but surely I am replacing my favorites. To be able to find the same edition was fantastic. Thank you Alibris.

A Great Read!

by DeniseK on Aug 23, 2007

Lawrence knew how to tell a tale. Whether it's all true is another matter. Maps and line drawings bring the saga to life. No question that the events, misunderstandings, and betrayals depicted here lay the groundwork for much of the current state of affairs. Timing really is everything. The presence of this particular person, with his shrewd ability to promote himself, blend into the culture, as well as write, during a crucial period for the region gives the reader an understanding which is lacking from other sources.
