CHAPTER XII - T. E. LAWRENCE

to work to cut it down by 50,00o words. He removed, among other passages, the entire opening chapter, which seems a pity, for it was a helpful piece of writing and propelled the reader easily into the action. (One sentence in that cancelled chapter always stays in my memory :` All the subject provinces of the Empire to me were not worth one dead English boy ' ; a sentence to be weighed against ' The sword also means cleanness and death,' which is stamped on the cover of the present volume.) From the cut-down ' Oxford ' the famous ` subscribers ' edition of 1926 was made ; it was adorned with magnificent and sometimes arbitrary illustrations, and with an ornamental initial at the top of each page when possible. Revolt in the Desert, for public consumption, appeared at the same time. This is, of course, a drastic abridgement, though T.E. once remarked that he had added one unpublished item to it, in order to tease the subscribers. He loved teasing people who thought themselves It. The present edition reprints the ' subscribers '-with three minute omissions, carefully indicated in the text. Here the matter rests, unless the lost handbag is discovered and its contents revealed, when there may be the dickens to pay.
What is this long book about ?
It describes the revolt in Arabia against the Turks, as it appeared to an Englishman who took part in it ; he would not allow us to write ' the leading part.' It opens with his preliminary visit to Rabegh and understanding with Feisul ; then comes the new idea : shifting north to Wejh and harrying thence the Medina, railway. The idea works, and he leaves Feisul for a time and moves against Akaba with Auda, another great figure of the revolt. A second success : Akaba falls. The war then ceases to be in the Hejaz and becomes Syrian. Henceforward he co-operates with the British Army under his hero Allenby, and his main work is in Trans-Jordania ; it leads up to the cutting of the three railways round Deraa.. Deraa isolated, the way lies clear to the third success, the capture of Damascus ; the united armies enter Damascus, the revolt has triumphed.
That is what the book is about, and it could only be reviewed authoritatively by a staff officer who knows the East.
That is what the book is about, and Moby Dick was about catching a whale.
