Ancient Egyptian Warfare

Ancient Egyptian Battles were key moments in the history of Egypt that greatly affect the culture of each generation. Egypt is indeed one of the most peaceful civilizations in history as it didn’t know the meaning of words like battle or war for a long time; it didn’t have an actual army until the invasion of the Hyksos during the 15th Dynasty (1640-1522 B.C.E). The ancient Egyptians were able to live in harmony for a long period of time due to the unified society of Egypt and the geographic nature of this ancient country that include the Nile which flowed from the south to the north as it was a difficult obstacle to overcome, the Mediterranean sea protecting the northern border and the deserts protecting the other borders of Egypt. The Egyptians had to adapt to their new life as there were threats surrounding Egypt from every direction and learn from their enemies as they build an army and reinvented it to the highest level and ushered in a new age of military glory. Most of the battles in ancient Egyptian history were for the purpose of protecting themselves.
