With Lawrence in Arabia by Lowell Thomas( Book )

163 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 2,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was 1918 in Jerusalem, when the admiring young American scholar and journalist Lowell Thomas first met T.E. Lawrence. He went on to write With Lawrence in Arabia, a book that sparked the Lawrence of Arabia legend and was the basis of the celebrated film. With brilliant narrative verve, Lowell recounts the exploits of the young British agent who managed to weld disparate and warring Arab tribes into a formidable mobile fighting force - a guerilla army that would defeat the Turks in the Arab Revolt, sealing the fate of the Ottoman Empire in the Middle East during World War I. On a canvas whose background is the fierce, inhospitable desert and in whose foreground stride the Emir Feisal, King Hussein I of the Hedjaz, the British General Allenby, and the strange, hypnotic figure of Lawrence himself, Thomas paints a vivid portrait of the "modern knight of Arabia."

"Felix Graf von Luckner (born Dresden, Germany, 9 June 1881, died Malmö, Sweden, 13 April 1966) was a German nobleman, navy officer, author and noted sailor who earned the epithet Der Seeteufel (the Sea-Devil) ? and his crew that of Die Piraten des Kaisers (the Emperor's Pirates) ? for his exploits in command of the sailing commerce raider SMS Seeadler (Sea Eagle) in 1916?1917. It was his habit of successfully waging war without any casualties that made him a hero and a legend on both sides. "--Wikipedia
Doolittle : A Biography by Lowell Thomas( Book )

11 editions published between 1976 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Doolittle and aviation grew up with the 20th century. He made the first transcontinental flight that took less than twenty-four hours; he was the first American to fly the Andes;he received one of the first Ph.D.s in aeronautical engineering. He worked on techniques and instruments for blind flights, and for longer and faster ones. He won countless awards for his breathtaking stunt flying, and he was a three-star lieutenant general by the end of World War II. Eisenhower and Churchill respected him not only for the daring Tokyo Raid which he led, but also for his ideas on military air strategy.Above all, it was his vitality that attracted the attention of businessmen, military personnel, flying buffs, and sociable people in general. That zest for life has kept Doolittle and his wife going strong even now, as they approach their eighties. It's that spirit that makes his biography more than just the story of an ace pilot."--jacket flap
Famous first flights that changed history by Lowell Thomas( Book )

8 editions published between 1968 and 2004 in English and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Within a few miles of the famed chalk cliffs of Dover, horror-filled spectators gasped as a little plane they had been watching spun crazily, hopelessly out of control, toward the grassy meadow 65 feet below. Seconds later, the plane righted itself as it crashed to the soft turf. A jubilant Frenchman named Louis Blériot looked up from the controls, eyes aglow. He had good reason to be exhilarated--he had just completed man's first long-distance flight over water. Louis Blériot's 22-mile flight startled the world in 1909. This adventure, along with the daring exploits of many other pioneers of the air, is vividly described in Famous First Flights That Changed History. Both Lowell Thomas and Lowell Thomas Jr., who had active roles in 3 of the 16 history-making flight, recount all the harrowing details which have thrilled the world over the past 60 years. Readers everywhere will find themselves involved in the romance and hazards of long-distance flying: with Lindbergh as he plays a breathtaking "game of solitaire" with the forces of nature; with the Magellans of the Air on their round-the-world air race; and with Ross Smith and his three crewmen on their trouble-plagued flight from London to the Land of Down Under. In this volume, amply illustrated with over 40 on-the-spot photographs, the authors also tell the stories of several attempts that failed, some of which surpass the success stories for sheer adventure."-- inside flaps of dust jacket

Bogen er et genoptryk af en bestseller fra 1928 af en kendt journalist Lowell Thomas.

Verdenskrig og umiddelbart efter var tyskerne blevet dæmoniseret i den allierede presse. Bogen indeholder en lang række fortællinger af enkelte episoder og introduceres Gary E. Weir
