quarto, (xiv), 193 pp. For the better part of a century the Hejaz Railway has been known for Lawrence of Arabia's celebrated desert campaign, fighting alongside the bedouin in the Arab Revolt during the First World War. Yet perhaps the reputation that it truly deserves is for the epic story of its construction, a monumental feat of engineering, requiring enormous imagination, skill and resolve. James Nicholson has brought a scholar's thoroughness and precision to an absorbing theme, turning up archive material which has lain neglected for a hundred years. New. Bookseller Inventory # 17805
