Picked this up at a thrift store, a biography of TE Lawrence, AKA Lawrence of Arabia, AKA TE Shaw of the Royal Tank Corps, and TE Shaw of the RAF. Written by Michael Yardley, well researched, and foot noted to beat Hell. Lawrence's story is not exactly what David Lean and Peter O'Toole showed in the movie. If one word can sum up Lawrence's life and personality, Weird, with a big capitol "W" would be the closest. Appears many of the problems with the Middle East today stem from things England, France, and the other allies did and promised to disrupt the Turkish Empire.

Well worth the read.

Lawrence was and is 'enigmatic' to say the least. He will always remain a mystery. Thanks for the recommendation.

His fondness for receiving flagellation is definitely on the weird side...Seemed to love and hate publicity, took advantage of knowing powerful people, but wanted to be known as "just one of the guys", so to speak.
