An extra thousand words each (Fromkin's photographs)
About a third of the way through the book, Fromkin provides one set of photographs of subjects from the first few sections, and I was wondering what the effect of those photos were for you.
Personally, I found the photo of Sykes to be fascinating. Coupled with Fromkin's descriptions of Sykes background and his action, especially of his many reversals of opinion, the photos contributed to fuller picture of Sykes' personality -- or at least of how I might have perceived it had I been present at the time.
The photo of T.E. Lawrence crouching in the sand was also effecting, I thought. He has a funny, self-conscious smile on his face, that really drives home his vibrancy as a person.
