Air Chief Marshal Sir Edgar Ludlow-Hewitt

Biography of the RAF Marshal, who held important positions in the ranks of the RFC and RAF during the First World War and who, under his command, led the British Bomber Air Force to the beginning of World War II.

The founder of World War I special operations was British officer Thomas Edward Lawrence

Col. Clayton took another look at the thin, tall lieutenant and thought for a long time. They didn't know much about the Arab uprising yet. Intelligence found that Sheriff's princes Abdallah and Faisal raised a red banner in Mecca and declared the end of Turkish rule over the Arabs. Under their command, they managed to gather 10,000 men. They gradually occupied most of the cities and ports in Hijaz. But no one knew what the Turkish reaction was. For several times already, the inexperienced lieutenant came to him, saying that it was necessary to use this revolt for the interests of the British crown. It is said to be the most opportune moment - they should support the Arab tribes in their resistance. He himself declared that he would act as a liaison officer at the prince's court.
