Overview

-- Clear account of military events in the Bible
-- Fully revised edition incorporating new research
-- New maps and plans throughout

The Bible's military accounts, told here in vivid detail, cover a vast period, from the invasion of Canaan by the Israelites under Joshua's command, through the conquest of the kingdom by David and Solomon and the split of the kingdom into Judah and Israel, to the Maccabees' successful rebellion against Seleucid domination. The reliability of these accounts is supported by their technical accuracy and by descriptions of topographic conditions peculiar to specific battlefields.

Chaim Herzog, former president of Israel, and Mordechai Gichon, professor emeritus of archaeology at Tel Aviv University, present here a comprehensive work on the wars of ancient Israel. Both authors have seen extensive militaary service in much the same geographic areas as are featured in the biblical accounts.
