To subscribe to MHQ and for our online extras, including a gallery of photos from the Philippine-American War, visit:

On The Cover: Thomas Edward Lawrence began World War I as a captain in Britain’s military intelligence. By war’s end, he was Lawrence of Arabia, legendary guerrilla fighter. As this 1918 photo shows, he often wore Bedouin robes while fighting alongside the Arabs. For the story of Lawrence and the peace that fractured the Middle East, see page 14. (Archives & Special Collections, Lowell Thomas Papers, Marist College, USA; colorization by John Roche/Slingshot Studio)

On The Back Cover: An American soldier sits on a fallen Philippine statue in 1898, near the end of the Spanish-American War. That conflict led to the United States’s war against Filipino nationalists, a counterinsurgency chronicled on page 78. (The Art Archive)
