I acquired this book as I had been in communication with a descendant of William Jervois whose life is the subject matter.

I had no idea that one person could achieve so much.

Very interesting and well written.

My husband wrote it. It is extensively researched and well illustrated. A must for any fort study, and interesting biography.
