POLL DESCRIPTION
In Slingshot, Patrick Waterson makes his argument against Egyptian chariotry being a skirmish force as commonly supposed, but actually being a shock force…
…charging in close formation like cataphracts of the classical period.
Do you believe their primary use was as shock or skirmish?
