T. E. Lawrence, The Mint


 

The Mint is a portrait of life in the ranks of the RAF in the 1920s. Although written in 1928, Lawrence did not intend it for publication in his lifetime. He himself did not swear, but his accounts of barrack-room conversations contain language that some might find offensive.
