- Informazione su di me
- "All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did. I meant to make a new nation, to restore a lost influence, to give twenty millions of Semites the foundation on which to build an inspired dream-palace of their national thoughts."
I was born in what is now Gwynedd in Northern Wales on August 16th, 1888. I would receive my degree from Jesus College, Oxford in 1910 and would then begin my career as a practicing archaeologist in the Middle East. With the outbreak of World War One, I would eventually join the General List in October of 1914. With my extensive knowledge of the Ottoman Empire and the Arab people, I was assigned to work with Arab rebels to overthrow the Ottoman Empire from within and I earned several medals for my work.
In 1923 I joined the Royal Tank Corps under the false name of T. E. Shaw, until I was able to join the Royal Air Force in 1925. However, in 1928 I was forced to return to England from my assignment in India, and I would die in England on May 19, 1935 at the age of 46 from a motorcycle accident.
