“They Took Their Armies”

Alan C. Miner

In Alma 25:2 we find that the Lamanites took their "armies." Does the word "armies" imply a major invasion? If so, what were the Lamanites trying to accomplish? The reader should note that this war is also recorded from a Nephite perspective in Alma 16. [Alan C. Miner, Personal Notes] [See the commentary on Alma 16:2]
