Among the many wars which depicted and documented at the ancient Egyptian history, little of them had combined "council of war", which was held by the king "Pharaoh" and his councilors to take an essential and a hard decision to begin the war, or choose military tactic. As for the dating period of the research, it contains four military councils which existed from the beginning of the 2nd intermediate period (war councils of Hyksos king Apepi "Apophis", Theban kings Seqenenre and Kamose, till the war council of the king (Thutmose III) at the 18th dynasty of the new kingdom. At last, the search makes an analysis among the four councils, about the causative of holding the council, the place of it, the identity of the councilors , the decision maker, and the result of the decision.
