Book Description:
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.
