Today the Middle East is in constant turmoil, a place where peace and prosperity are increasingly scarce and life is becoming a daily struggle. With terrorism, religious fundamentalism and sectional strife tearing the region apart, the question is often asked, how did this happen? One hundred years ago, when World War I devastated Europe its "sideshow" in the Eastern Mediterranean also changed forever Europe's peaceful backwater that had been the Ottoman Middle East.

For a time, one man had more influence on British policy, strategy and the war effort that changed things forever in the Middle East during World War One than any other, including T.E. Lawrence. Sir Mark Sykes came up with the idea of the Arab Bureau that would make Lawrence famous and he devised the Sykes-Picot Anglo-French Agreement that would divide the region into the countries of the Middle East we know today. This book draws on archival sources to tell Sykes' story.
