    The fortified town of Kadesh is in the top left corner, protected by arms of the Orontes. The Hittites are attacking from the left bank of the Orontes and Ramses is mounting a counterattack. Most of the action here seems to be between Egyptian chariotry and Hittite foot soldiers, when in reality the Hittites fought mainly with their chariots.
