BRITAIN IN THE AGE OF ARTHUR: A Military History
Starts with the assumption that King Arthur existed and that Geoffrey of Monmouth's account has preserved details of his career that are based on real events. He then interprets these by using 'common sense' and the perspective of a specialist in late Roman military history to form a probable picture of what really happened during the period (roughly AD 400-550). Includes 50 b/w drawings and diagrams, and 16 pages of plates.

This approach tests the entire literary evidence for the existence of Arthur to see if the supposed events of his career match what is known of the events of the period, the conclusion being that in general they do. Arthur's military career is set in the context of the wider military history of Britain and Europe in this period and along the way describes the nature of armies and warfare of the period.1 vol, 256 pgs 2020 UK, PEN & SWORD

FIRE AND STONE: The Science of Fortress Warfare 1660-1860
Covers the classic age of military engineering, which was heralded by the work of Vauban, chief engineer to the French King Louis XIV. Examines the purpose of fortresses across Europe and the debates of the time concerning their offensive and defensive uses. Analyses the strategic and structural considerations that dictated their locations and describes how they were planned, designed, and built and by whom. Explains how a siege progressed from start to finish plans and preparations, the investment of the fortress, the ways in which a fortress could be reduced short of a formal siege, and the siege itself at every stage, from the choice of the frontal attack to the storm of the breaches and capitulation. Differences in siting, design, and techniques of attack and defense for coastal fortifications are also covered. 1 vol, 166 pgs 2023 UK, HELION AND COMPANY
