Peking 1900 by Peter Harrington

Book Description

In the 19th century China was gradually becoming another colony of the European powers which recognised her many riches that were ripe for the picking. From 1860 when Britain went to war with her, until the end of the century, China was constantly at odds with the world powers and her neighbours. By 1897, the Chinese were desperate to remove all foreigners from their land and used the Boxers as a tool for this purpose. Numerous atrocities were committed against foreigners, particularly missionaries, and in the middle of 1900 they tumed their attention on the diplomatic missions in Peking.

Castles of Henry VIII by Peter Harrington Castles of Henry VIII, Paperback (September 2007)

Anticipating a foreign onslaught from Europe after his split from Rome, Henry VIII began construction of more than 20 stone forts to protect England's major ports and estuaries. Aided by illustrations, the author explores the departure from artillery-vulnerable medieval castle designs to the low, sturdy stone fortresses inspired by European ideas.

A study of the fortifications used in England during the Civil War. It covers the defences of London and Oxford, as well as looking at castles, earthworks and field fortifications. The author also traces the development of new defence systems that were developed by engineers such as De Gomme.
