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.).

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.
