4.0 out of 5 stars Congrats!, 21 April 2009

This review is from: The Fortifications of Malta 1530-1945 (Fortress) (Paperback)
This is the first book that has mentioned and explained the Victoria lines, a defensive wall built right across the country. Think of this as the Hadrian's Wall of Malta. Fabulous! If they treat an obscure fortification like this (it was obsolete less than ten years after it was completed) then I can trust the author on other, greater issues.
Unlike guidebooks that show you fortifications as tourist attractions, he shows you all the defenses of Malta in context - the items that were built at a certain time for a certain reason in a specific style. As the book progresses you get to see Malta's fortifications in their historical layers. You also see lovely full-color illustrations of maps and cutaways to let you see the inside of the various forts and batteries.
I'm more interested in Malta than military fortifications, so some of the terms went over my head. Nonetheless it was an engrossing read and well worth the trouble to get it (I'm in the States and had to order it from Amazon.co.uk).
Enjoy!
