This book would be an excellent reference for model figure painters and traditional modelers alike. There are not many kits available that cover this period, so whatever a hobbyist's project might be, it will require a significant amount of research to get things just right. This book will go a long way toward achieving that.

Nic Field's Soldier of the Pharaoh: Middle Kingdom Egypt 2055-1650 BC is a pick for any serious military collection interested in early military experience, offering insights to the motivations, weaponry and tactics of early Egyptian soldiers.
The California Bookwatch (January 2008)
...superbly illustrated by Peter Bull and includes photos of artifacts from the period to help illustrate sections of the book. In all, an excellent reference and read on Bronze Age soldiering.
