Ancient warfare and military are different among the cultures and societies of that time. The first to which is worth talking about is Mesopotamia and Egypt. The first signs of war began with small primitive tribes usually raiding other settlements using the element of surprise to take advantage of a hopefully disorganized camp. These clashes were usually person-to-person, with no real organized attack. It isn’t until true settled civilizations came around, rather than nomadic natured tribes, that a true “army” could be created and actually last. “Of the two Mesopotamia is the more prone to warfare” (Donebauer). Egypt is the less of the two because of the geography surrounding it. The long narrow strip, being a fruitful river valley region, is surrounded by desert to the west and highlands to the east. The pharaohs protected their civilization with what today would be referred to as a sort of “police force”. This was because there was little worry for invasion due to the brutal surrounding around them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
