Citadels, Castles and Other Fortifications in Romania is a daring project meant to bring to public attention the local defensive architecture from the Neolithic until the late Middle Ages. The synthesis-oriented, easy to read text gives a brief presentation of the military history of this geographic area, explaining the political context in which people built fortifications and citadels. The book is made valuable by the remarkably rich illustrations. The many reconstructions of the fortifications and citadels more or less known to the general public, aerial photos and archive drawings make the book a pleasant and interesting read for all history lovers. It is a visual, friendly book, which goes beyond explaining with words and focuses on showing through pictures.
