Possibly the inspiration for Indiana Jones, Thomas Edward Lawrence is known to the world as Lawrence of Arabia. Lawrence became an expert in Arab affairs while working as an archaeologist throughout the Middle East. He put that knowledge to use when he later joined British intelligence, and played a key role in the Great Arab Revolt against Ottoman Turks. Leading guerrilla forces behind Turkish lines he destroyed bridges and supply trains and raided key ports and towns. Lawrence became the legend that we know him to be today.
