Why did i choose Aqaba ?
- It’s a smart move gathering an out of the box tactic in a global strategy, well executed because of specific human resources skills
- Aqaba is a surely a smart tactic move into the overall strategy : take a Suez alternative, from my opinion what i retain is how and why what seemed not possible became a possibility :
- the study and observation of the context (a SWOT ;) in regards to the objective + sometimes the intuition : it makes it all
- play on strengths and characteristics : the environment knowledge of the desert and ability to manoeuvre of Arabic troops (obviously not sailors) to attack from the desert the harbour
- to lead several different stakes to one objective : each tribes had a goal that contributed to the overall achievement even though they split after the win
Aqaba nickname : the married of the red sea
- Aqaba (English: /ˈækəbə/, also US: /ˈɑːk-/; Arabic: العقبة, romanized: al-ʿAqaba, al-ʿAgaba, pronounced [æl ˈʕæqaba, alˈʕagaba]) is the only coastal city in Jordan and the largest and most populous city on the Gulf of Aqaba.
- Aqaba’s strategic location at the northeastern tip of the Red Sea between the continents of Asia and Africa, has made its port important over the course of thousands of years.
Lawrence d’Arabie - T.E. Lawrence
- The on-screen portrayal shows Lawrence leading a charge directly into the Red Sea port of Aqaba, a vital strategic location for the Arab Revolt and Allied forces to claim before pursuing Damascus. In reality, the battle was fought about forty miles away, and Aqaba itself was taken with little resistance afterward.
- The importance of the battle and Lawrence’s involvement in it cannot be stressed enough, however. The Royal Navy had failed to take Aqaba from the sea on several occasions, and attacking from land seemed impossible due to nearly 200 miles of desert blocking the approach.
- The idea of crossing that desert was ludicrous. Lawrence and Faisal counted on this approach being dismissed as such—and sent their troops out over the desert, suffering intense heat and dehydration before successfully attacking Turkish defenses from behind.
As strategic a leader as he was sympathetic to the Arab Revolt’s cause, Lawrence’s planning and provided intel was just as vital, if not more so, than his overseeing of the conflict itself.
- The European Allied forces were considering capture of the port for their own economic gain, while the Arab insurgency could use Aqaba as a new foothold in spreading the insurgency.
