A thrilling narrative of one of the most epic and consequential periods in 20th century history - the Arab Revolt and the secret great game to control the Middle East.
The Arab Revolt against the Turks in World War One was, in the words of T.E. Lawrence, ” a sideshow of a sideshow.” Amidst the slaughter in European trenches, the Western combatants paid scant attention to the Middle Eastern theater. As a result, the conflict was shaped to a remarkable degree by a small handful of adventurers and low-level officers far removed from the corridors of power. - from the PublisherReserve this book
