  9. 9. ESL GOLD Lawrence of Arabian <ul><li>Lawrence and the Arabs </li></ul><ul><li>T.E. Lawrence was a scholar and an experienced archaeologist.Born in Wales on August 16th, 1888, he was 25 when the First world War began. The army sent him to Cairo as an intelligence officer and he quickly became an expert on Arab nationalist movements. These groups wanted to free the Arabs from Turkish rule and establish an independent Arab nation. </li></ul><ul><li>In 1915, Sherif Hussein of Mecca rebelled against the Turks and an Arab army led by his son Feisal attacked the Turkish soldiers in Medina. The following year Lawrence was sent on a fact-finding mission to the Hedjaz region where the Arab army was operating. He quickly became a friend and respected adviser to Feisal. </li></ul><ul><li>The Turks in Medina and the Hedjaz depended entirely on a single railway line for all their supplies. This was the Hedjaz railway which ran south from Damascus. Lawrence decided to attack this railway. By continually cutting the railway at different points he would isolate the Turkish soldiers in Medina, force the Turks to use thousands of men to try and protect the railway, and prevent these soldiers being used against the British army in Palestine. He was very successful and the Turkish forces in Arabia were powerless until the end of the war. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Lawrence the Arabian <ul><li>In 1917, Lawrence led the Arab army north and raced against the British army to take the city of Damascus. The Arabs won by two days. It seemed that the Arabs dream of an independent Arab state might come true and after the war ended Lawrence went to the Peace Conference in Paris to argue the case for a free Arabia. He was unsuccessful and the Arab lands were given to Britain and France. </li></ul><ul><li>Lawrence was angry and disappointed. He wrote a book about his experiences in Arabia titled &quot;The Seven Pillars of Wisdom&quot;. It became a bestseller and many years later became the basis for the movie &quot;Lawrence of Arabia&quot;. </li></ul><ul><li>In 1923, Lawrence decided to disappear from public life and after changing his name joined the newly formed Royal Air Force as a low-level mechanic. He served for 12 years in India and England and became a keen motorcyclist. His love of motorcycles finally killed him in 1935 when he was thrown from his machine in an accident. He suffered serious head injuries and died a few days later . </li></ul>
