A man of inventiveness, versatility and reformist ideas, Marshal
Sebastien Le Preste de Vauban built a formidable ring of fortresses
to protect France's national frontiers. More than just a
fortification designer, Vauban was also a gifted economist, author,
and political strategist. This book tells the complete story of
Vauban's exceptional career, placing him within the framework of
Louis XIV's reign and revealing his lasting influences in France
and other nations. With the aid of numerous detailed drawings, 17th
century bastioned fortification, artillery, and seige warfare are
described in detail. Vauban's fortifications that are still
standing today are particularly highlighted.
