Lawrence and the Arabian Adventure

By Robert Graves
Doubleday Doran, 1928
400 pp. $3.00

The latest contribution to the story of Lawrence's astonishing career. The writer gives the substance of "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" and "Revolt in the Desert" and has added many new facts concerning the earlier career of the hero. What comes out particularly is the independent initiative taken by Lawrence and the failure of the government officials fully to appreciate the situation and support the arrangements which had been made with Arabs. The book serves to put the whole episode into a correct setting, and it is to be regretted that the author thought necessary to present his case in such puerile language.
