    DescriptionWritten by Trevor Bryce, one of the world's leading experts on the Hittites, this book charts the rise and fall of a warrior people famed for the ferocity, who built an empire which stretched from Mesopotamia to Syria and Palestine. For nearly a century the Hittites fought a draining war against the Egyptians - the climax of which saw the Hittites defeated and their 400-year-old empire destroyed at Qadesh. Bryce details the day-to-day lives of the Hittite warriors, examining their training, equipment, tactics and their unique attitude to religion and warrior ethos. This book is a fascinating and enlightening addition to an often ignored subject.

    Review quote
    "Beautifully and professionally produced, as are all Osprey publications, this book has 8 color, 39 black and white photos, and 4 maps ... The combination of color plates and well-researched text from rare first-hand sources makes this a must for those interested in this army and period." -Michael Koznarsky, "Historical Miniature Gamer "(Issue 10) "Trevor Bryce's "Hittite Warrior" is written by an expert on the topic and follows the history of a warrior people famed for their ferocity. Their early empire stretched from Mesopotamia to Syria and Palestine: this book examines not only their history and culture, but specifically their battle tactics and strategies." -"The Bookwatch" (February 2008) "Bryce not only deals with the soldiers' life, but the lives of ordinary Hittites as well to place the military into context... While there are a number of good learned books and articles about the Hittites, this new volume is a useful primer on the subject and as such I can recommend it to the modeller and wargamer." -Paul Bradley, "International Plastic Modeler's Society" "It is a book that should be on the shelf of any serious historian or those who have an interest in this era. One I enjoyed reading and can highly recommend to you." -Scott Van Aken, "modelingmadness.com" (August 2007)
