ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the author E. Lawrence. A British author, Richard Aldington, has pronounced publicly that the saga of T, E. Lawrence is a myth. Although Aldington's views are to be incorporated in a book, he cites as pre-publication evidence several physical inconsistencies and numerous military and diplomatic discrepancies in Lawrence's own autobiography. Lawrence Aldington insists, could not possibly have accomplished all that he claimed, the Lawrence legend was a deliberate fabrication of its principal. Rushing to the defense of Lawrence's reputation, a group of friends and admirers of the late Oxford classicist has contended that the weight of personal observation ought properly to be given precedence over documents and statistics.
