SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM - A TRIUMPH is the autobiographical account of the experiences of British soldier T. E. Lawrence ("Lawrence of Arabia") while serving with rebel forces during the Arabian Revolt against the Ottoman Turks.
The extraordinary breadth and variety of his activities and associations, and his ability to describe them vividly in writing, earned him international fame as Lawrence of Arabia, a title popularised by the 1962 film based on his life.
THE SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM has been called "a novel traveling under the cover of autobiography," capturing Lawrence's highly personal and exciting version of the historical events described in the book.

This is the exciting and highly literate story of the real Lawrence of Arabia, as written by Lawrence himself, who helped unify Arab factions against the occupying Turkish army, circa World War I. Lawrence has a novelist's eye for detail, a poet's command of the language, an adventurer's heart, a soldier's great story, and his memory and intellect are at least as good as all those. Lawrence describes the famous guerrilla raids, and train bombings you know from the movie, but also tells of the Arab people and politics with great penetration. Moreover, he is witty, always aware of the ethical tightrope that the English walked in the Middle East and always willing to include himself in his own withering insight.From the Publisher:
The monumental work that assured T.E. Lawrence's place in history as "Lawrence of Arabia." Not only a consummate military history, but also a colorful epic and a lyrical exploration of the mind of a great man who helped shape the Middle East as it exists today.
