9781846031069: Soldier of the Pharaoh: Middle Kingdom Egypt 2055–1650 BC (Warrior)

Osprey's survey of the soldiers of Ancient Egypt. The pharaohs of Egypt have captured the imagination of readers throughout the ages. Their existence and power have been given a mythical status. In this book, Nic Fields reveals the truth behind these myths, and explores the lives of the ordinary soldiers who were the might of Middle Kingdom Egypt. Using rare artifacts, he pieces together the day-to-day existence of the pharaoh's army, from archers and hand-to-hand fighters, through to the "sole-companions" of the pharaoh.

Quoting from ancient sources Dr Fields depicts the battles on land and at sea in dramatic detail, whilst all the time providing a rare insight into the minutiae of the soldier's life: from the food he ate through to the gods he worshipped. This book is a delight for any reader interested in the mystery of Ancient Egypt.

About the Author:

Dr Nic Fields started his career as a biochemist before joining the Royal Marines. After leaving the military, he went back to University and completed a BA and PhD in Ancient History at the University of Newcastle. He was Assistant Director at the British School at Athens, Greece, and then a lecturer in Ancient History at the University of Edinburgh. Nic is now a freelance author and researcher based in southwest France. The author lives in France.

Review:

“This book would be an excellent reference for model figure painters and traditional modelers alike. There are not many kits available that cover this period, so whatever a hobbyist's project might be, it will require a significant amount of research to get things just right. This book will go a  long way toward achieving that.” ―Sonia Maes, Toy Soldier & Model Figure

“Nic Field's Soldier of the Pharaoh: Middle Kingdom Egypt 2055-1650 BC is a pick for any serious military collection interested in early military experience, offering insights to the motivations, weaponry and tactics of early Egyptian soldiers.” ―The California Bookwatch (January 2008)

“...superbly illustrated by Peter Bull and includes photos of artifacts from the period to help illustrate sections of the book. In all, an excellent reference and read on Bronze Age soldiering.” ―Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (December 2007)
