"This book provides the first and only comprehensive survey of armor, shields, and fortifications [of American Indians]. . . . It has left me with a new appreciation for the sheer diversity of warfare, armor, and fortifications used by Native Americans, and it shatters stereotypes about the nature of aboriginal warfare."—Wayne Van Horne, Associate Professor of Anthropology, Kennesaw State University.

To maintain its imperial power in America, Spain built fortifications across the width of the continent. These outposts were established along Spanish borders from the late sixteenth century onwards to defend its interests against rival European powers and to suppress uprisings of the Native Americans and local population. By the eighteenth century, Spain's defenses spread from the northern area of the Gulf of Mexico through to California. Some of these imperial fortifications, such as the Alamo, played key roles in conflicts including the American Revolution and the Texan War of Independence. This book provides a cogent analysis of Spain's defensive network at the height of the country's imperial strength on the American continent.

American Coastal Defences 1885-1950 (Fortress 44) By Terrance McGovern
English | 2006 | 64 Pages | ISBN: 1841769223 | PDF | 19 MB

A new round of fortification building began in the United States and its overseas territories in the late-19th century, which benefited from the latest technology and the increase in America's worldwide economic stature. This book provides a concise introduction to the design, development and purpose of American coastal defenses in the 'modern period' (1885-1950), a period defined by the use of concrete, steel, and powerful breech-loading rifles. Packed with period and modern-day images of the fortifications, and written by a leading expert, it covers the emplacements, weaponry, equipment, and people that defended their country in times of great change and uncertainty.
