This is the first comprehensive treatment of the composition and historiographic background of ancient Egyptian military inscriptions (c. 155 B.C. to c. 450 B.C.). In his chronological study Anthony Spalinger analyzes numerous texts from a formalistic as well as a literary viewpoint. His discovery-that aspects of ancient Egyptian military writing were regulated by a preexisting framework and set phraseology-will enable historians of ancient Egypt to discriminate between what was hyperbole and what was reality in a given military situation.
