Since ships first set sail in the Mediterranean, The Rock has been the gate of Fortress Europe. In ancient times, it was known as one of the Pillars of Hercules, and a glance at its formidable mass suggests that it may well have been created by the gods. Sought after by every nation with territorial ambitions in Europe, Asia, and Africa, Gibraltar was possessed by the Arabs, the Spanish, and ultimately the British, who captured it in the early 1700s and held onto it in a siege of more than three Since ships first set sail in the Mediterranean, The Rock has been the gate of Fortress Europe. In ancient times, it was known as one of the Pillars of Hercules, and a glance at its formidable mass suggests that it may well have been created by the gods. Sought after by every nation with territorial ambitions in Europe, Asia, and Africa, Gibraltar was possessed by the Arabs, the Spanish, and ultimately the British, who captured it in the early 1700s and held onto it in a siege of more than three years late in the eighteenth century. The fact that that was one of more than a dozen sieges exemplifies Gibraltar's quintessential value as a prize and the desperation of governments to fly their flag above its forbidding ramparts. Bradford uses his matchless skill and knowledge to take the reader through the history of this great and unique fortress. From its geological creation to its two-thousand-year influence on politics and war, he crafts the compelling tale of how these few square miles played a major part in history.

Gibraltar has been a major landmark ever since the first ships ventured into the Atlantic. To Greeks and Romans it was one of the two pillars of Hercules-the end of the known world and the beginning of the "Stream of Ocean."Gibraltar's location dictated that it would become a fortress. Over the ages it has served different masters. Roman, Arab, Spanish, English. Today, despite all the technology the 20th century can muster, Gibraltar remains as strategically vital as ever."Bradford is a Gibraltar has been a major landmark ever since the first ships ventured into the Atlantic.

HANNIBAL, THE GREAT SIEGE, ULYSSES FOUND, CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS, among others, all contribute immeasurably to our understanding of where we are and how we got here."
