This is a fascinating book that looks at an area of ancient military history that is usually overlooked by historians.

The very readable text is supported by images through the body of the book. The reader will be drawn by well-presented information and find that the perception of ancient history is enhanced greatly by the inclusion of religious beliefs and practices that explain some aspects of military history that are otherwise incomplete.
