Later, though, I learned about the uprising in the Ottoman Empire led by T E Lawrence. That episode was, perhaps, the last period of warfare that resembled the classic battles of the American Civil War. Had I been exposed to such discussions in high school as are discussed in this book, “Great Battles for Boys: World War I” by Joe Giorello, I would have been a far better history student than I was.
Of course, one of the reasons I enjoyed this book so much was the discussion of T. E. Lawrence, the last great rebel war leader. Note: there is a link to a classic film of Lawrence of Arabia documenting the man’s leadership, assisting Feisal in his battle for freedom for the Arabs. I enjoyed this especially because, as life would have it, I would, in 2002, wed the granddaughter of the unsung hero, Rafik Jabbour, who, as consul for Iran, got Feisal freed from Turkey so he could go on to meet, and join, Lawrence.
Ironically, my first review ever for Amazon was of T. E. Lawrence’s “Seven Pillars of Wisdom.”
So, of course, this book might mean a little more to me than it does to some. Still, I wish more easy-to-read books on history were available.
Five stars out of five.
Note: I was provided a free copy of the paperback edition, but I borrowed, with no reimbursement, the Kindle Unlimited edition. I found the book to be worthy of keeping in my library for research purposes, so I purchased a Kindle edition.
I consider THAT to be proof as to how much I value “Great Battles for Boys: World War I.”
