This classic text is the first integrated survey of the phenomenon of siege warfare during its most creative period. Duffy demonstrates the implications of the fortress for questions of military organization, strategy, geography, law, architectural values, town life and symbolism and imagination. The book is well illustrated, and will be a valuable companion for enthusiasts of military and architectural history, as well as the general medievalist.

""Siege Warfare represents a valuable resource in the library of anyone interested in the contours of early modern warfare. The full meaning of developments in siege warfare remains still to be worked out by historians, but we can be confident that, when they do, they will use the materials so ably assembled by Christopher Duffy."
