9789888028498: The Defences of Macau: Forts, Ships, and Weapons Over 450 Years

This book fills a gap in describing Macao's defensive works and weapons, on land and sea, much of which has been previously unrecorded. These defences were crucial to the survival of Portuguese and the book covers the period from its founding in 1557 until the late 20th century.

About the Author:

Richard Garrett was educated at Dulwich College and Trinity College, Cambridge. He is honorary research fellow at the University of Hong Kong's Centre of Asian Studies, and a member of the Arms and Armour Society, the Society for Army Historical Research, and the Ordnance Society. He started collecting antique firearms in 1965 and has written many articles on antique weapons.

Review:

Richard Garrett's The Defences of Macau is an integrated historical survey of the port's defensive systems encompassing its forts, warships, artillery and small arms. This masterful account of how this enigmatic city approached defensive warfare will appeal to military historians, students of fortification and orientalists alike. Highly recommended. (Bill Harriman, arms and militaria specialist, BBC TV Antiques Roadshow)
