I thoroughly enjoyed this installment of the Osprey Military Campaign Series. As usual, the information is concise, to the point, interesting, and a fascinating read. Also, the maps and other illustrations and photos, are fantastic. If you like ancient history, this is an excellent introduction to a particular epic battle of antiquity.

The great battle in Syria in 1300 BC between the Egyptians and Hittites makes for a interesting read more than three thousand years after the event took place. this is a good Osprey volume but a old one published in 1993. it was the earliest recorded battle in Human history and involving around 6,000 chariots which surely makes the clash the largest one involving chariots! the great Pharaoh, Ramesses the 2nd fought the Hittite king Muwatalli. they signed a treaty about 12 years later, the earliest in history, which is on display in a Istanbul museum. a very good read for those who are interested in Ancient Warfare.

Another excellent book from the Osprey Campaign Series. This earliest recorded Battle in the human history is recounted and critiqued by the author in an exciting manner. As opposed to a mundane account of the battle and the events leading to it, the author constantly provides objective strategic insights to the battle based on the analysis of the battlefield as well as the compositions of the armies. This introductory book is well illustrated and provides photographs of key areas of the battlefields. Highly recommend.

A very good read. The editor blinked too many times for my taste, forcing me to slow down and untangle some of the language. Also, the photos are not the best always, but the maps are very useful and the premises are excellent.
