Second edition, after the 1768 original, with revisions, corrections, and additional information. Treats both the attack and defense of fortified locations, using several concepts introduced by MM. de Vauban and de Coehorn, and also separately treating the systems of these, along with those of d'Errard de Bar-le-Duc, Ingenieur de Henri IV; Marolois; Chevalier de Ville; de Pagan; de Mallet; and M. Jean-Antoine d'Herbort. Irregular and field fortifications are also treated. This study is particularly useful for the extensive definitions provided for the various components of fortifications, and for its breadth of comparison in styles.
