Bülow, Prince Bernhard von (1849-1929), a German statesman and chancellor. His failure to check the German military clique has been held partly responsible for bringing about World War I. Bülow fought in the Franco-Prussian War (1870-71), then served in the diplomatic service in various capitals of Europe. He was chancellor, 1900-09. His foreign policy, particularly when he challenged French control over Morocco in 1905 and backed Austria's annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1908, increased German isolation.
Lawrence, T. E. (Thomas Edward) (1888-1935), a British soldier and writer known as "Lawrence of Arabia." The Seven Pillars of Wisdom is his account of his adventures and ideas as leader of the Arabs in their successful revolt against Turkey in World War I.
