his is a site devoted to the fortification. Its purpose is to detail the history of fortifications through the centuries and in relevant places. It uses as much words as pictures to explain why the buildings were built, how they were taken and which evolutions they knew...
This site is now too big to be entirely translated. The objective is then to translate key features and to let you look at the pictures with a small accompanying text or legend.
