Críticas:

"Korda...has redrawn the map, and reinvented T.E. Lawrence, coming closest to giving this elusive holograph in a white "dishdasha" a pulse."--Daily Beast

"In "Hero", Korda presents Lawrence's life in minute, fascinating detail. . . . Korda's extensive research and straightforward writing make this a valuable addition to the Lawrence library, a one-stop resource for all who are interested in this hero."--"Dallas News"

""Hero" is a full-scale, major event, [and] a great biography. . . . The triumph of the book is Michael Korda's brilliant, always balanced portrait of the infinitely fascinating Lawrence of Arabia, the relevance of which, now in our time, is of greater importance than ever."--David McCullough

"Lawrence of Arabia, one of the great heroes of any age, has found the right biographer in Michael Korda--a keen judge of the human condition and a master story teller who can separate myth from reality without diminishing the grandeur of his subject."--Evan Thomas, author of The War Lovers

"Korda's biography of Lawrence's life and legend conjure up a pathos and a very human side to the mystique of Lawrence of Arabia."--New York Journal of Books

"Korda persuasively argues that had Lawrence's vision for a Mideast peace prevailed after the war...that deeply troubled part of the world might be a far more peaceful, prosperous region than it is today."--Associated Press

"Few come closer to appraising the man in all his protean grandeur, and essential mystery, than Michael Korda. . . . One of the most compelling books I have read in a long time."--Sir Alistair Horne, CBE, author of A Savage War of Peace

"Hero is a portrait of Lawrence in all his complexity that is worth its 700-plus pages."--BookPage

"T.E. Lawrence is next to impossible to fix on the page. Yet Michael Korda has done so, delivering up a crowded, improbable life in a page-turning biography, every bit as rich as its protean subject. A splendid read."--Stacy Schiff, author of Cleopatra: A Life

"A splendid biography about a most unusual and extraordinary individual."--Hugh Thomas, author of The Spanish Civil War

Reseña del editor:

From Michael Korda, author of the New York Times bestselling Eisenhower biography Ike and the captivating Battle of Britain book With Wings Like Eagles, comes the critically-acclaimed definitive biography of T. E. Lawrence—the legendary British soldier, strategist, scholar, and adventurer whose exploits as “Lawrence of Arabia” created a legacy of mythic proportions in his own lifetime. Many know T.E. Lawrence from David Lean’s Oscar-winning 1962 biopic—based, itself, upon Lawrence’s autobiographical Seven Pillars of Wisdom—but in the tradition of modern biographers like John Meacham, David McCullough, and Barbara Leaming, Michael Korda’s penetrating new examination reveals new depth and character in the twentieth century’s quintessential English hero.
