Summary:
In 1916 British Intelligence supports the Arab rebellion against the Turkish-German alliance. Dryden, a civilian member of the Arab Bureau, selects Lieut. T. E. Lawrence, an enigmatic 29-year-old scholar, to evaluate the Arab revolt. Enthusiastically undertaking this assignment, the officer contacts Prince Faisal, a rebel leader, and persuades Faisal to lend him a force of 50 men. With this skeleton band, accompanied by Sherif Ali, Lawrence crosses the Nefud Desert.
