We really like fortifications books here at Casemate and this is one of the best we have seen in a long time. So we are specially importing a very limited number of copies from Belgium - order now, this book will not be available for long. The fortifications surrounding the port city of Antwerp were amongst the most ambitious undertaken in the years before the First World War and, amazingly, the buildings are nearly all still to be seen. This sumptuous full color 'coffee table' type book provides the reader with an unparalleled collection of beautiful photographs, excellent color plans from the time, contemporary images, charts and maps. Everyone interested in fortifications should put this book on their 'must have' list. The text of the book is entirely in Dutch. For many this will not matter - but please don’t say we didn’t tell you!
