Abstract : Much has been written by and about Mao Tse-tung of China and Thomas E. Lawrence, the British Intelligence Officer. Both earn their fame from the development and execution of successful guerrilla warfare strategies. Mao claims he never read the writings of Lawrence who was active during WWI for one single period of guerrilla warfare. Mao began in the late 1920s and more prominently later to successfully practice the guerrilla tactics of which he so painstakinglywrote. Mao still practices his guerrilla strategies today long after the death of Lawrence. What made these men successful. Why did they accept odds of ten or one hundred to one without fear and generally summarily defeat them. Both men practices the art of intellience to it's fullest. (Modified author abstract)
