* Major-General Francis James Rennell Rodd, 2nd Baron Rennell (1895 – 1978), was an army officer and the second but eldest surviving son of the diplomat Rennell Rodd, 1st Baron Rennell. He served with distinction as a Chief of Civil Affairs in the Mediterranean theatre of war 1941-44. During the First World War he served as an intelligence officer in France, Italy, North Africa, Egypt, Libya, Palestine and Syria. While in Egypt and Palestine, he befriended T. E. Lawrence, triggering his passion for exploring desert landscapes.
After the war, and while still working at the Foreign Office, he travelled twice through the central Sahara desert (1922), and wrote about his findings about the wandering Tuareg tribes which inhabit the Mountains of Air or Asben in the Central Sahara in this book.
