Item description for The Hejaz Railway by James Nicolson, Stacey International & Al Turath...

Winding its way from Damascus through the vast desert wastes of Jordan and into the spectacular barren mountains of northwest Saudi Arabia, the Hejaz Railway was a testament to the fading but still potent power of the Ottomans in Arabia. Planned as a pilgrim line to Makkah, the railway also served the political, strategic, and economic interests of the crumbling Ottoman Empire under Sultan Abdulhamid II. It opened in 1908, but enjoyed only six years of normal service, before war spread eastwards and engulfed the region. In this in-depth history of the Hejaz Railway, James Nicholson examines the motives behind the decision to build the railway and details the massive task of construction and the project's financial background. He describes the years of service from 1908 to 1914, and gives a gripping account of the war years, focusing on T. E. Lawrence's legendary--and ultimately successful--campaign to destroy the railway.
