Sinopsis y Descripción del libro FORTIFICATIONS OF GIBRALTAR 1068-1945

Gibraltar, located at the meeting points of Europe and Africa, has a rich testimony of human conflicts spanning 600 years in its fortifications.

In 1068 the Spanish Muslims in power built a large fort there.

Between 1309 and 1374 Gibraltar underwent a period of intensive construction and fortification, and after the Spanish reconquest of 1462 the inhabitants carried out new works.

In 1704 the last and uninterrupted period of British rule began.

In the 18th century there were three sieges, including the most serious, known as the Great Siege, which lasted from 1779 to 1783.

During World War II, the "rock" served as a vital stopover for supply convoys and the naval base, with a veritable warren of secret tunnels.

This book documents the rich history of Gibraltar and traces the development of these fascinating fortifications.
