Praise

"…does a great job in describing the world’s longest fortifiged wall." -J. E. Kauffman, Site-O

"…Turnbull’s work is surprisingly detailed and informative… This book will prove an excellent resource for a prospective visitor or teacher in the classroom." -Timothy Baghurst, The Traveler

"The author, Stephen Turnbull, does a superb job of taking a huge amount of information and compressing it into the basics… This is all further enhanced by excellent photographs of the wall as it is today and the stunning illustrations and maps provided by Steve Noon. Together it provides an outstanding primer on this most imposing construct. I learned a great deal from this book and I know you will too. Like all Osprey titles, it is one you can buy with confidence." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com

"This is a fascinating book, well written and well illustrated… It is highly recommended to anyone interested in the history of fortifications or non-Western warfare." -Bolling Smith, The Coast Defense Journal
