Product description

In the course of his 32-year reign over ancient Egypt, Thutmose III fought an impressive seventeen military campaigns. He fought more battles over a longer period of time and experienced more victories than either Alexander the Great or Julius Caesar. Yes, despite his illustrious record, his name does not command the same recognition as other military leaders. This new biography brings to life the character and ability of ancient Egypt's warrior king. Considered the father of the Egyptian navy, he created the ancient world's first combat navy and built an enormous shipyard near Memphis. He reformed the army, creating a professional officer corps and equipping it with modern weapons.
