Ancient Egypt

During the reign of Ramesses II in 1250 BCE, Egypt had what was then known as the world’s largest army, boasting at one point some 100,000 soldiers which the pharaoh used to wage war against the Hittites. These military campaigns were relatively unsuccessful in the beginning, mainly due to Ramses’ lackluster commanding and strategist skills. Nevertheless, he was the first leader to command such a great number of armed forces, and his army managed to protect Egypt’s borders and ensure the safety of his land over the course of 67 years during his rule.
