While not directly related to coast defense, this book is compelling, both from a human perspective and from the perspectiuve of medieval fortifications and siegcraft. From either aspect, this is an excellent book and well recommended.
Bolling Smith, Coast Defense Journal
This book makes both a useful guide and history of the fortifications in the region of Languedoc... The book serves as a useful resource, especially since most books on the Cathars and their fortifications are only in French.
J.E. Kauffman, The Coastal Defence Journal
...ably illustrated by Peter Dennis and further enhanced by photographs of the sites as they are today. I found his drawings and cut-aways to be especially informative and gives an idea of what it was like to be in these places during times of siege. Overall, another fascinating book from the folks at Osprey. I always learn from these books and find them to be an excellent resource. It is a book you can buy with confidence.
