Book Description:

This book is an introduction to the Pharaonic war machine of New Kingdom Egypt from c.1575 B.C. to 1100 B.C.. Written by a respected Egyptologist, it concentrates on Dynasty XVIII and the Ramesside period, in which the Egyptians created a professional army and gained control of Syria, creating an `Empire of Asia'. The author highlights technological developments during this period, such as the new use of chariots and siege technology; and considers the socio-political aspects of warfare, particularly the rise to power of a new group of men. At the same time, he evaluates the military effectiveness of the Egyptian state by looking at the logistics of warfare; each chapter is followed by an `excursus' in which the logistical issues are analyzed in detail. The text incorporates pictorial and archaeological materials, ensuring a fully rounded treatment of the subject. A chronological table and a chart of dynasties and pharaohs also help readers to gain an overview.
