WARRIOR 121: SOLDIER OF THE PHARAOH  Middle Kingdom Egypt

Details

The pharaohs of Egypt have captured the imagination of readers throughout the ages and their existence and power have been given a mythical status. In this book Dr 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 artefacts, he pieces together the day-to-day existence of the pharoah's army, from archers and hand-to-hand fighters, through to "sole-companions" of the pharoah. 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 intrigued by the mystery of Ancient Egypt.
