From Michael Korda, author of the New York Times bestselling Eisenhower biography Ike and the captivating Battle of Britain book With Wings Like Eagles, comes the critically-acclaimed definitive biography of T. E. Lawrence—the legendary British soldier, strategist, scholar, and adventurer whose exploits as “Lawrence of Arabia” created a legacy of mythic proportions in his own lifetime. Many know T.E. Lawrence from David Lean’s Oscar-winning 1962 biopic—based, itself, upon Lawrence’s autobiographical Seven Pillars of Wisdom—but in the tradition of modern biographers like John Meacham, David McCullough, and Barbara Leaming, Michael Korda’s penetrating new examination reveals new depth and character in the twentieth century’s quintessential English hero.

Great story,terrible print job
Did no one edit or type proof this book? The sloppy printing takes a great deal of pleasure away when reading this amazing story. Shame on this publisher.
... Contains; numerous capitalization errors, repeating information, run together words, incorrectly handled quotes from previously published other material. Refund requested.
In the beginning Korda seemed to be engaged in hero worship. As my reading progressed, the work revealed itself as a forthright and honest portrayal of a unique historical character.
Hero has prompted me to now read Seven Pillars of Wisdom. I recommend Korda's biography of Lawrence to anyone who is interested or wants to become interested in T.E.Lawrence.
