The Sykes-Picot Agreement

This is a section of my 2019 graphic memoir, Dreamers of the Day, which follows my research trip to Oxford University in March 2019 as I begin work on my TE Lawrence graphic biographies.

This comic explains the Sykes-Picot Agreement, a secret agreement between the British and the French dividing up the Ottoman Empire before the Arabs entered WWI.



*the French regarded Lebanon and the Syrian Coast as inherently French.

One thought on “The Sykes-Picot Agreement

  1. Thank you for an excellent cartoon. I know a few people who wouldn’t read a book but will have a go at a comic. Please keep up the good work.
