For two centuries Martello Towers have stood sentry along the shores of England and former British possessions worldwide. In excess of 200 of these formidable towers were built at a staggering cost principally to counter the Napoleonic threat; some as far afield as Australia, the West Indies and the Mediterranean.This lavishly illustrated book, authoritative yet wholly readable, is recommended to both the visitor (43 Martellos remain in the UK) and armchair reader.
This work is a valuable historical record and a ‘must have’ addition to the bookshelf of any afficanado of military fortifications.Martin Willoughby, Chairman of the Wessex Branch of the Western Front Association
