Harold Nelson’s book on Thutmose III, on which most subsequent accounts rely, is usually cited with a publication date of 1913, which appears on the title page of the volume. But in the preface, Nelson notes that the volume did not actually appear until 1920, because he was “confined behind the Turkish lines in Syria during the whole of the war” (Nelson, The Battle of Megiddo, p. i). So the book could not have been available to Allenby.
