FORTRESS 91: THE FORTIFICATIONS OF ANCIENT ISRAEL & JUDAH 1200-586 BC

Details

This book provides a detailed study of the fortifications of the founders of ancient Israel from the time of their first settlement in the Middle East through the periods of the united and divided kingdoms until the sack of Jerusalem in 586 BC. It begins in the period of Israelite settlement in the First Iron Age period (1200-1000 BC). The extensive fortifications created by the famous kings Saul David and Solomon are covered including Gibeah Jerusalem Megiddo Hazor and Gezer which are described in the Bible. The period of the Divided Monarchy saw the creation of two separate political entities: the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. The enemies the two kingdoms faced in this period included Moab Edom and the Arameans as well as the mighty empires of Assyria Babylonia and Egypt. This book is a must-have for fans of warfare in the ancient Middle East.
