Description
Superbly illustrated with plan drawings, cross-sections, detailed renderings, photographs, and reproductions of art, this book offers an outstanding survey of the design and construction of fortifications since 3000 BC, showing how the work of architect, stonemason, and engineer evolved together to counter increasingly advanced means of attack. It focuses largely on the medieval castles of Europe—often depicting them in their heyday in period paintings and engravings—and also examines the biblical city, Chinese wall, English motte-and-bailey, French château, Crusader stronghold, Russian kremlin, Japanese yamashiro, the forts of Mughal India, and North American forts.
