“We accompany a small force of the Imperial Camel Corps under the command of Colonel R.V. Buxton, D.S.O., on its trek from Ismalia (Suez Canal) to objectives on the Hedjaz Railway, Arabia, to assist the Arabs in their revolt against the Turks.

The Arab Revolt, organized, planned, and supervised by Colonel Lawrence (assisted by a few British officers and the freedom-loving lawless Arabs), was later carried to a successful conclusion by the capture of Damascus and provides some of the most romantic and thrilling episodes in the history of warfare.”
