Bronze Age War Chariots by Nic Fields
Book DescriptionChariots, the first mobile fighting vehicle, seem to have originated in Mesopotamia in the third millennium BC. The highly mobile two-wheeled war chariot, carrying a driver and an archer armed with a short compound bow, revolutionized military tactics after 1700 BC. This expensive weapon spread throughout the Middle East and is thought to have reached Egypt with the conquering Hyksos. It spread into Asia Minor, Greece, and was known in Northern Europe by 1500 BC. This book covers the evolution of the War Chariot, throughout the Bronze Age, including the design, development and combat history B in particular its fundamental involvement at the battle of Qadesh.
