Description
"There was a craving to be famous; and a horror of being known to like being famous." This confession by Lawrence of Arabia sums up much of this book by Andrew Simpson, a longtime member of the T.E. Lawrence Society, who reveals that his later career was largely a headlong flight from fame. Why did one of the most recognized military heroes of World War I become Aircraftsman 2nd Class Rossa nobody? And after that hiding place was exposed, Private Shaw of the Tank Corps? Lawrence later returned to the RAF, even though Churchill offered him exalted diplomatic positions and Nancy Astor implored him to re-enter the fray as the Nazi threat grew. And yet in his "other life" Lawrence was in fact amazingly productive, giving us Seven Pillars of Wisdom, The Mint (a controversial inside story of the RAF), and a translation of the Odyssey, while also making significant contributions to the development of marine rescue craft.
