By refusing to recoil in horror from these ironic monuments, or even simply to ignore them as so many other shell-shocked by the experience of war had done, Virilio admirably shows how even the most challenging forms of architecture are open to historical debate and aesthetic interpretation. The book's black-and-white photographs are poignant illustrations of his larger points. --Dwell: (January, 2009)
"Paul Virilio's classic book of wartime architectural history, Bunker Archeology, is finally back in print with a fantastic new edition from Princeton Architectural Press. The book had taken on the feel of something like an urban legendsomething of which many had heard but few had directly experiencedso it's good to get our hands on a copy." -- Geoff Manaugh (January, 2009) --Dwell Magazine
"Bunker Archeology redefines the blockhaus within the cultural context of modern architecture, providing an iconic model for French design cultural that represents both its extremes and limits. Its metaphor becomes the means to conceptually objectify architecture to a minimalist end, allowing the architect to play on the theme of the monolith and its aftermath, the fractal." --The Architect's Newspaper
"The Atlantic Wall, (was) an attempt by the Germans to fortify the entire west coast of France as the threat of Allied invasion increased. The relics of this 'wall', on cliff-tops or among sand dunes, staring out at the sae, are the subject of Bunker Archeology." -- Andrew Mead (June, 1996)

So for those of us actually in the field of Military and Industrial Archaeology, it is a big disappointment. I bought it on impulse, which was a mistake. Also, it is pretty expensive for what it is.
