If you like forts you might enjoy reading about the Michael Jordan of fort architects, Sébastien Le Prestre de VaubanDoes anyone know about these supposedly called "Star Forts"?
Sorry for the image size discrepancy....
These baby's are all over the world. Mostly conveniently connected to direct water access/intake.
A good chunck, I'd say 70 percent are overgrown, destroyed or just taken over when found and most/some inner infrastructure is of an earlier date.
Just liked to share something I personally wasn't tought in school.

Here's an excerpt :
"Vauban's 'scientific approach' and focus on large infrastructure projects strongly influenced American military and civil engineering and inspired the creation of the US Corps of Engineers in 1824. Until 1866, West Point's curriculum was modelled on that of the French Ecole Polytechnique, and designed to produce officers with skills in engineering and mathematics."
Thanks for tagging me. I love the minimalist visuals in the video and the cinematography is also so well done. Very impressed, and I think I'll watch some of the other videos the director has put out. The music is also cool.
