'A rich and highly readable interdisciplinary study that draws together the Great Arab Revolt and the Palestine campaigns into a larger whole.'?
Justin Marozzi, Spectator
'Neil Faulkner's book is caustic, richly detailed and provocative'Â¦ he skewers his main subject exactly.'?
James Barr, BBC History
'Neil Faulkner goes beyond psychohistory and places Lawrence's endeavour in a wider political and cultural context. He gives the best short account I've read of Gallipoli: dramatic, vivid but still subtly inflected; and he explains the strategic battle in London between military Westerners and political Easterners.'?
Brian Morton, Glasgow Herald
'The book expertly describes the politics that led to these wartime alliances'Â¦ really comes into its own with the detailed accounts of the military forces the strategic and tactical considerations of the combatants, the alliances and each of the battles in the region'Â¦ This is a book that brings a seminal period of history to life and is worthy of study by all who wish to gain an in-depth understanding of the background to its current political impasse.'?
Dr. Stephen Leah, Methodist Recorder
'Though closely interlinked, the Great Arab Revolt and the Palestine campaigns are generally studied separately. Neil Faulkner's eminently readable account treats them in parallel, opening up a much wider context for Lawrence's Seven Pillars.' Jeremy Wilson, author of Lawrence of Arabia: The Authorised Biography
'A lively history of the Arab Revolt that sheds important new light on Lawrence's Seven Pillars as a reliable source. Essential reading.'
Eugene Rogan, author of The Arabs: A History
