"Murphy provides an excellent narrative of how the British and French supplanted the Ottoman Turks as the rulers of the Middle East (and how this caused a large rift between the Arabs and the British and French once the Arabs realized what was going on). He also shows how some the most influential Arab players in the Middle East came to be so important -- many were involved in the Arab Revolt -- families such as the Husseins (Syria) and the Sauds (this is provided in a section entitled 'Legacy of the Arab Revolt' which is divided into parts about Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, and the Hejaz (mainly Saudi Arabia). Finally, Murphy discusses the fate of the most famous man from the Revolt -- Lawrence of Arabia -- it is quite a sad story. This book is an excellent resource for any person interested in the Arab Revolt in World War I." --Jeff Grim, www.collectedmiscellany.com
