O knjizi:

A Chronicle History of Forts and Fortresses charts the entire history of fortification, from the Ancient Babylonian brick structures of 3500 BC to the massive Atlantic Wall erected by the Germans during World War II. Each chapter covers a specific period in history, or a specific culture, and fully documents the best examples of fortification, the defensive innovations of the period, and other key developments, such as the invention of gunpowder and the evolution of cannon warfare. In the final chapter, distinguished military historian Martin Brice discusses the future of fortification, drawing on examples of the phenomenon from recent history. A concise but comprehensive glossary is included to explain the terms used throughout the text. A Chronicle History of Forts and Fortresses, with its beautiful illustrations and photographs and informative richly-detailed text, explores the romance, awe, and genius of its subject, while also reminding us of the horror and cruelty to which many of these defenses bear silent witness.
