2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By J. David Markham on September 24, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Jason Musteen has given us a unique study of one of the military icons of the world. Using an outstanding selection of archival, primary and secondary sources from Spain, Britain and France, Musteen writes in a style easily accessible to scholar and general reader alike. Musteen vivid description of Gibraltar's personalities, politics and even such things as the difficulties in supplying water and food greatly enhances his discussion of its military history. Had I been able to read this book before my own visit to Gibraltar I would have had a far better understanding of its unique and fascinating history.
