Description - Hittite Warrior by Trevor Bryce

Written by Trevor Bryce, one of the world's leading experts on the Hittites, this book charts the rise and fall of a warrior people famed for the ferocity, who built an empire which stretched from Mesopotamia to Syria and Palestine. For nearly a century the Hittites fought a draining war against the Egyptians - the climax of which saw the Hittites defeated and their 400-year-old empire destroyed at Qadesh. Bryce details the day-to-day lives of the Hittite warriors, examining their training, equipment, tactics and their unique attitude to religion and warrior ethos.
