T.E. Lawrence

T.E. Lawrence (1888-1935), otherwise known as Lawrence of Arabia, was an almost mythical figure even during his lifetime. He first moved to the Middle East in 1911 to work as an archaeologist. When World War 1 broke out, he started to work for British Intelligence, where he master-minded and coordinated military manoeuvres that determined the fate of the war in the Levantine Territories.
