Description - Secret Techniques of the Elite Forces by Leroy Thompson

The writings presented in this volume shed tremendous light, both on the character of T. E. Lawrence and the current sitation in the Middle East. Despite being written more than seventy years ago, the thoughts of Lawrence of Arabia remain remarkably pertinent. This collection includes Lawrence's wartime reports from the desert, as first printed in the Intelligence jounal Arab Bulletin, along with his later writings in which Lawrence attempts to cope with the consequences of war in the circumstances of peace. Many of the pieces have previously only been issued in limited editions. This is an invaluable companion volume to Seven Pillars of Wisdom, which offers a self-potrait of its author long before the Lowell Thomas publicity machine turned him into an international celebrity. Lawrence in War and Peace, in short, gives us the man before the myth, writing fluently, vividly and with a total command of his subject - albeit with an eye to his future literary ambitions. It also analyses how his wartime experiences changed him and his writing.
