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.
