Historical Background
After a disastrous campaign against neighboring Cyrene, Egyptians rebelled against their pharaoh Apries, who sent his finest general Amasis to quell the rebellion. Amasis was instead successfully wooed by the rebels and placed at the head of the uprising, with the climactic clash coming near Momemphis. This battle pitted Apries and his army of mostly Carian and Ionian mercenaries against a rebel force composed of his own countrymen. Despite fighting valiantly according to Herodotus, the mercenaries were overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of Egyptians; Apries was later captured and executed, with Amasis succeeding him as the next Saitic pharaoh.
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. Can you change history?
