This book has been written in the attempt to apply to the biblical narrative modern military thinking and understanding. The Holy Land's strategic position as the main land-bridge of the Eastern Mediterranean has, since antiquity, compelled those of its inhabitants who strove for independence to maintain an efficient war machine and to put it from time to time to expert use, in order to maintain their freedom. Only in this manner and by the full military exploitation of the terrain did the Jews of ancient times succeed in retaining the de facto mastery of ancient Israel for twelve centuries. These military exploits of a small nation, pitted more often than not against great odds, seem to us to be worthwhile recording in modern terms. Besides offering the military background and interpretation of the events that shaped biblical history, the critical examination of wars and matters military in the Bible affords many lessons that hold good up to the present day. - Foreword.
