Lamanite Aggressions Begin
Zarahemla’s Age of War
Lamanite troops approach the city of Ammonihah, and are sorely disappointed to find that Ammonihah had been completely rebuilt and strongly fortified with an enormous ridge of dirt encircling the city’s perimeter.
The Lamanites are astounded by the defensive preparations; they had thought that Ammonihah would have been destroyed just as easily as it had been before.
Had Amalickiah been there personally, he doubtless would have ordered an attack anyway, but his commanding officers who were in charge decide to leave the city alone and travel further into Nephite territory toward the city of Noah.
The Lamanites are again surprised to find the city of Noah, which had previously been a weak spot, is now even more heavily fortified than Ammonihah.
The general leading the forces at Noah was Lehi—whom the Lamanites remembered and feared from the Zerahemnah strike at Sidon.
The city of Noah had been fortified with circumscribing banks of dirt and ditches such that the only possible way to enter the city is through the main entrance—Lehi’s forces, heavily guarded, are ready with assorted projectiles to launch at any invaders.
