Thus, some of us know that Lawrence of Arabia's epic could not have taken place without the Great War. But we also know that his account "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom" would not have been the monument of literary power that it is if its author had not lived the Arab guerilla warfare against the Ottoman Empire down to its flesh.
