With Lawrence in Arabia by Lowell Thomas( Book )

138 editions published between 1920 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 2,202 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.”

"This Sea Devil friend of mine, Count Luckner, is a character of increasing wonder and beguilement. He has been lecturing in the United States with unparalleled success these past two years, from the Atlantic to the Pacific and back again. Everywhere he is superbly unique, all that you would expect, and more, of a titled aristocrat who ran away from his father's castle as a boy, went to sea, lived for years the rude life of a sailor before the mast, became an officer in the German Imperial Navy and finally during the World War took an old windjammer through the British blockade and with it raided Allied shipping in the Atlantic and Pacific, until the ship was wrecked on the coral reef of an island in the South Seas"--Preface
