Description
Michael Korda's Hero is the story an epic life on a grand scale, a revealing, in-depth, and gripping biography of the extraordinary, mysterious, and dynamic Englishman whose daring exploits and romantic profile made him an object of intense fascination, known the world over as "Lawrence of Arabia." Yet Korda does not seek to burnish or destroy the legend; rather to demystify and reveal the real man as he truly was. Korda analyzes Lawrence's vision for the modern Middle East, plans that might have prevented the current hatred and bloodshed of the region. Ultimately, Lawrence remains the paradigm of the hero in modern times, the arch-heroic type whose life is at once a triumph and a sacrifice, and whose capacity to astonish remains undimmed.
