After restoring the true king of Babylon to the throne, king Shalmaneser III of the Neo-Assyrian Empire returns to the west to fight it out with what he considers the “rebels” in the west; The League of Kings. The battle of Qarqar was inconclusive, but can the alliance hold together in a five year war against the mighty Assyrian empire?
Israel will not help the league but instead fights with Damascus and deals with rebellious vassals.
And what is Hammath doing? Are they changing sides?
