Man-Made Wonders: Castles Hardcover Book

Man-Made Wonders: Castles Hardcover Book

From the earliest times, people have built fortified structures to protect them from their enemies. Later, these would become the complex and menacing buildings we know as castles - crucial power-bases in the great wars of history. This book features 75 splendid castles ranging from the smallest hill forts to the largest town-sized fortresses. Full-color photographs portray the extraordinary variety of castles and forts, from the magnificent alcazars of Spain to the beautifully symmetrical shiros of Japan; from the near-impregnable, English-built castles in Wales to the elegant chateaux on the Loire in France; from the giant Crusader castles of the Middle East, now abandoned to the winds and sands of the desert, to the fairy tale schlosser of Germany. Fascinating facts are included, which detail not only the history of each castle - when it was built, how long construction took, why it was built and by whom - but describe its physical characteristics and dimensions as well.
