The period covered in the Old Testament was one of great technological development and innovation in warfare as competing cultures clashed in the Middle East. This authoritative history gives an overview of warfare in this period, from the Sumerians use of bronze to the Assyrians development of chariot warfare through to the Babylonians soldiers who were granted land for their service. Simon Elliott explores how archaeology can shed light on events in the Bible including the famous tumbling walls of Jericho, the career of David the boy warrior who faced the Philistines, and Gideon, who defeated an army that vastly outnumbered his own.
