Under the leadership of great rulers such as Rameses II, Egypt - the most ancient and enduring power of the biblical world - fought every other major power to control an empire that stretched from the Sudan to Palestine and from Libya to Syria. In this volume the arms and equipment of the armies of Ancient Egypt are examined.
