"To Colonel Lawrence more than to any other man was due the efficient organization of Hedjaz Army. He worked in perfect harmony with King Hussein and prince Faisal, to whom he was second in command. For months his wild and reckless yet continually successful expoloits at the head of his Bedouin force of 200,000 horsmen were spoken of in this and other countries of the East. A small blonde young Englishman, with intensely blue eyes and a strong chin, he was adored by the fierce tribesmen whose every exploit with horse or camel he could equal, if not surpass. Fearless and resourceful, defeat to him meant simply accomplishing a given task in a different way."
