Billy Pitt Had Them Built : Napoleonic Towers in Ireland

This is a detailed study and account of more than fifty Martello towers, ten 'quadragular' towers and seventy two signal towers built along the coast of Ireland and the shores of some Irish sea loughs between 1803 and 1817. The book is fully illustrated by original plans (many sourced from The National Archives) and photographs and describes the history of these structures, which acted as a deterrent to any possible invasion of Ireland by the forces of Napoleon Bonaparte.
