I was able to obtain a copy of this fine book, and I applaud Dr. Hess's well-researched efforts to write one that covers the military operations of fortifications. He presents a good case with his impressive range of primary accounts and secondary works. He uses the National Park Service resources along with conversations with NPS historians. Also he uses archeological studies to explain some information on the technical aspects of the structures. Dr Hess deserves all the credit for presenting this first installment of his most definitive work on fortifications. His military assertions on 19th century warfare challenges us to think over most carefully and consider for argument.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
