Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Although much has vanished over the millennia there’s still a surprising amount to be seen by visitors to the area, and the major sites are comprehensively described and illustrated here. The Hittites clashed with other empires as well as with nearer neighbours, and developed some intriguing fortification techniques as a result. This is a book that will fascinate students of the ancient Near East as well as wargamers. Highly recommended." -John Prigent, Internet Modeler (March 2008)

"The author examines the various features of Hittite fortifications; walls, towers, gates, posterns, and ramparts. A volume that will interest those who study ancient history or archeology offer a different perspective on the once powerful Hittites." -J.E. Kaufmann, SiteO (March 2008)

"Overall, another fine book in this series and one that should be on the shelves of anyone interested in this particular time and place in ancient history." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (March 2008)
