Description:
Siege warfare is a demanding form of combat, which occupies a unique place in military history. In contrast to mobile combat, 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 tracks the technology, artillery and tactics of starting and maintaining a siege from ancient times to the beginning of the gunpowder age, charting the struggle between defensive structures and the various engines designed to overcome them.
