This book deals with the later years of the crusades, when the people building castles realized that they were grimly holding on, with very limited resources in men, to every scrap of land. The idea had some effect on how and where they built. The illustrations are very useful. ( )

This is an Osprey Castle Book, with pretty good illustrations and contour maps. There are lots of diagrams, with good Saone,and Jerusalem's St. Stephen's Gate featured. ( )
