Overview
-

The New Kingdom of Egypt marks the apogee of military organisation and preparedness. Beginning the era under foreign occupation, the Egyptians built up an army to challenge the invaders and liberate their land. Using the newest battlefield technologies (bows, chariots, and hand weapons), the new pharaohs pushed the frontiers of the New Kingdom into Syria and Ethiopia. This is the era of Set I, Ramses II, and Tuthmosis III, the greatest military pharaohs in Egyptian history.

Warfare in New Kingdom Egypt narrates this incredible rise to power, describing in detail the way in which the Egyptian war machine was structured, how it was supplied, and how it fought. It considers all aspects, some often neglected, such as campaign tents, logistics, and rations, in addition to the design of hand weapons and bows. Various kits have been reconstructed for the book, giving the reader a very immediate sense of what an Egyptian warrior's equipment looked like.
