Forts & Fortresses: From the Hill Forts of Prehistory to Modern Times: The Definitive Visual Account of the Science of Fortification
Martin Brice (au). This profusely illustrated volume charts the entire history of fortification from the Ancient Babylonian brick structures in 3500 B.C. to the massive Atlantic Wall erected by the Germans during World War II. Each chapter covers a specific period in history, or a recognizable culture, & fully documents the best examples of fortification, the defensive innovations of the period, & other key developments, such as the invention of gunpowder & the evolution of cannon warfare. Also discusses the future of fortification using 20th-century examples such as the Viet Congís network of basic tunnels which thwarted the U.S. military, to the ever-more-complex Strategic Defense Initiative.
