(From the publisher):
The Hyksos - interlopers from Asia Minor with Cretan and Minoan trading connections - ruled Egypt for over two hundred years. Then the native princes, roused by Seqenenra Tao of Weset, launched a rebellion. After his death, his son Kamose assumes command of the rebels and leads his troops on a perilous sweep up the river Nile toward the delta stronghold of the Hyksos pharoah Apepa. But Kamose cannot lead the Egyptians to ultimate triumph.
