The Golden Warrior: The Life and Legend of Lawrence of Arabiaby Lawrence James
This biography penetrates and overturns the mythology which surrounds T.E. Lawrence but is dispassionate and generous in spirit throughout. It has reopened debate and interest in one of the most remarkable men of the century. James reconstructs Lawrence's wartime career and analyzes how it was translated into a legend in the 1920s and 1930s. He traces how Lawrence used and contributed to this legend and how the myth of the so-called betrayal of the Arabs by the British has coloured the subsequent history of the Middle East.
