This book is a cut above most books on fortresses because it talks about the historical context and the importance of each site rather than a lot of obscure jargon on fortress design. The true story of fortification is their context, their history and their uses not their design details. This book not only descibes what they looked like, but when and how, and by whom they were built. It also give a short history on what happened at each site and why they were important in their time. One excellent point about this book is that it does not concentrate on such places as Ticonderoga or Fort Mc Henry but illustrates the frontier forts that played such an important part in the nations westward expansion.
