Description - Warfare in Ancient Egypt by Bridget McDermott

Warfare in Ancient Egypt takes the reader from the manufacture and use of flint hand-axes, wooden staves and stone bludgeons, through the origins of organised fighting groups under the command of a leader, and into the sophisticated and even elegant military culture that saw the composite bow, the khepesh, the sword, the javelin and above all the chariot. This aspect of Egyptian history has been almost entirely overlooked and, in this lavishly illustrated book, Bridget McDermott is able to present a vivid picture of what battle, training and military life was like for the non-elite members of the Egyptian armies.
