Editorial Reviews

“This book covers much new ground in relating the history of France's town-walls and fortifications to the general history of the country. It is based on a formidable reading of the scattered sources, and will lead many readers to material that they had not known.”--David Buisseret, formerly Garrett Professor of History, University of Texas at Arlington
