Item description for FRENCH CASTLES OF THE 100 YEARS WAR: Volume I by Stephane Gondoin...

This is the first volume in a fully-illustrated new series devoted to medieval castles. Following a chronological plan, this in-depth sequence on medieval military architecture should help to reestablish a typology of the castle.

Volume I deals with the main castles of the great Capetians, from Chateau Gaillard to castel de Coucy .

Stephane Gondoin and Cyril Castellant are not only specialist historians in their field, but also 3-D illustrators at the peak of their art.

Reviews - What do customers think about FRENCH CASTLES OF THE 100 YEARS WAR: Volume I?

Hundres Years War Castles  Apr 9, 2008
Overall I consider this a very interesting book but with some minor reservations. Firstly some nitpicking. The copy I received does not resemble the advertised item beginning with the title on my copy "Hundred Years War Castles"(Fortresses)as opposed to the advertised "French Castles of the Hundred Years War". I had to check twice to make sure I had received the correct book. The Book cover itself is also completely different with a glossy photo of the Castle of Vitre as opposed to the illustrated Battle scene. This aside, I found the book to be very informative especially in distinguishing between the varying styles of regional castle building and in particular the machicolation say of Brittany when compared to that of the Loire Valley, Provence and the south of France in general. While there is a great 3D reconstruction (Several pages) of a castle in this volume it is the of only one present- that of the castle of Mehun-sur-Yevre at its peak of architectual developement - eat your heart out Walt Disney! The rest of the depictions are glossy photos, pen & ink drawings (Viollet le Duc reconstructions), a few maps and numerous but not absolutely detailed floor plans. A detailed bibliography for further reading is included (Most of it in french!)and many handy internet links including the authors own webpage where there are further 3D reconstructions. Even if you are interested in Castles in general, this would be a handy addition to anyone library. I await to see what additional volumes may contain.
