Dealer Notes
No. 59 of 225. Ghalib Bey has the distinction of being the only serving Turkish officer to be depicted in Seven Pillars of Wisdom (Jaafar Pasha had joined the Arab army in the course of the Arab Revolt). Ghalib Bey is mentioned twice by Lawrence in the text of Seven Pillars of Wisdom (London, 1935): firstly as the commander of a Turkish force pursuing Arab forces in December 1916 (p. 119) and then in the description of an engagement between Arab forces under Feisal and the Turkish army, whose forces’ ‘command was in the hands of Ghalib Bey, who handled his troops with great keenness’ (p. 127).
