Vauban's Traitté des siéges et de l'attaque des places

About the Project

Sébastien Vauban (1633-1707) was the premier military engineer of his age and revolutionized siege warfare. Vauban's manuscript dates towards later in his life, from around 1700-1707. The title of the manuscript Traitté des siéges et de l'attaque des places: Traitté de la deffense des places roughly translates to Treatise on sieges and the attack of places: Treatise of the defense of places. The manuscript contains a letter from Vauban to the Duke of Burgundy, and is divided into two parts with the first on attack of places and the second on defense of places. After the second part, there are a number of hand-painted illustrations of fortifications and attack plans.
