In "Castles and Fortresses," castle expert Robin Oggins discusses the history and evolution of the castle from its modest beginnings through the war-torn Middle Ages to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, when wealthy eccentrics began building or renovating castles of their own. This beautiful book takes the reader on a tour of the major castles of Europe and those the Crusaders built in the Middle East.
