T.E. Lawrence and the Arab Revolt: An Illustrated Guide provides a compelling photographic overview of the life of Lawrence of Arabia and the Arab Revolt that he helped lead. Many books have been written about Lawrence but this book will provide many rare and unseen photographs to illustrate his role in the revolt and the people who fought with and against him.

Using photographs from public archives and private collections, Joseph Berton has assembled an impressive selection of images that will provide an important visual resource for military historians, figure modelers, and Lawrence enthusiasts. Special chapters include unpublished photographs of the Hejaz Armoured Car Battery, the French troops that supported Lawrence and the pilots and planes of the Royal Flying Corps that assisted with the Arab Revolt. Additional information will cover the award of the Al Nahda, presented by the King of the Hejaz to over one hundred officers who had helped in some way in their war against Turkey.

Photographs showing actual Arab robes worn by Lawrence, uniforms of Arab and Turkish soldiers and weapons, details of Bedouin clothing, camel saddles and rugs are provided with detailed captions. Photographs taken by Harry Chase, printed from original glass plate negatives, are also shown in amazing detail. Final chapters include a research guide to the major Lawrence collections in public institutions, some words of advice for the Lawrence collector today and information on visiting important Lawrence sites.
