An introductory section includes a chronology of Egypt, with all known military actions, and an essay highlighting the problems of the surviving evidence and its interpretation and the major changes in military technology and organization over the period involved. The central section covers a wide range of issues, including pharaohs for whom military activities are documented; foreign rulers and countries against whom the Egyptians fought or who invaded Egypt; weapons and military technology; major archaeological sites; gods and goddesses associated with warfare; arms trade; literature; and social advancement. The third section is a detailed bibliography of the historical phases and archaeological sites, and the broader subject areas covered by the dictionary.

Warfare in the Ancient World

Warfare in the Ancient World explores how civilizations and cultures made war on the battlefields of the Near East and Europe between the rise of civilization in Mesopotamia in the late fourth millenium BC and the fall of Rome.Through a exploration of twenty-six selected battles, military historian Brian Todd Carey surveys the changing tactical relationships between the four weapon systems - heavy and light infantry and hevay and light cavalry - focusing on how shock and missile combat evolved from tentative beginnings in the Bronze Age to the highly developed military organization created by the Romans.The art of warfare reached a very sophisticated level of development during this three millenia span. Commanders fully realized the tactical capabilities of shock and missile combat in large battlefield situations. Modern principles of war, like the primacy of the offensive, mass, and economy of force, were understood by pre-modern generals and applied on battlefields throughout the period.Through the use of dozens of multiphase tactical maps, this fascinating introduction to the art of war during western civilizations ancient and classical periods pulls together the primary and secondary sources and creates a powerful historical narrative. The result is a synthetic work that will be essential reading for students and armchair historians alike.

Fighting Pharaohs

This book looks in detail at the weapons and equipment used, at the Egyptian army and its soldiers and at some of the campaigns and battles fought by the warrior pharaohs, on land and water.

Fighting Pharaohs

The Egyptian civilisation lasted for over three thousand years, from 3100 B.C. to 30 B.C. This period saw the rise and fall of a succession of ancient Near-Eastern Empires that were a potential threat to Egypt. Weapons and equipment changed slowly over the centuries; flint and stone weapons were replaced by copper, bronze and later iron. The ambitions of individual Pharaohs varied considerably and in order to maintain military supremacy, foreign innovations, such as the chariot, were eagerly adopted and used to great effect. Information on aspects of military history is sketchy for some periods of Egyptian history, but nevertheless a wealth of material does survive; from scenes on the walls of temples and tombs, correspondence and peace treaties between nations, and the examples of the weapons and equipment that have been recovered from the ancient sites. This book looks in detail at the weapons and equipment used, at the Egyptian army and its soldiers and at some of the campaigns and battles fought by the warrior pharaohs, on land and water.
