Descrizione

The story of an epic life on a grand scale, Michael Korda?s Hero is a gripping, in-depth biography of the extraordinary, mysterious, and dynamic Englishman still famous the world over as ?Lawrence of Arabia.? An Oxford scholar and archaeologist sent to Cairo as a young intelligence officer in 1916, Lawrence was a born leader, utterly fearless and seemingly impervious to pain and fatigue. A bold and ruthless warrior, he was the virtual inventor of modern insurgency and guerrilla warfare; a writer of genius who alternately sought and fled the limelight. Korda digs deeper than anyone before him to expose the flesh-and-blood man and his contradictory nature?farsighted visionary; diplomat and kingmaker; shy, sensitive, and private man; genius military strategist; arguably the first modern ?media celebrity? . . . and one of its first victims. Hero is the magisterial story of one of the most unique and fascinating figures of modern times?the arch-hero whose life was, at once, a triumph and a sacrifice.
