Everything you need to know about Siege Warfare- from ancient times to the gunpowder age.

Siege warfare is a demanding form of combat, which occupies a unique place in military history. In contrast to manoeuvre warfare, a siege centres on a fixed location, whether a simple hill fort or an entire walled city, and the attacking force has to utilise a mixture of guile, patience, technology and brute force to wear down their opponents, smash through the defences and force submission.

This book explains the tactics and technologies of siege warfare for both attacker and defenders. Mighty siege engines are closely examined and illustrated in fine detail. This book discusses the complexities of underground and overground assault, undermining and sapping, and what happened after a besieging army forced a breach.

This was purchased as a birthday present for my daughter

She is a fan of trebuchets, ballista, and onagers. I hope she will really enjoy it. I have not looked at it much but it looks like it is very informative.
