Ramparts of Empire is a detailed and engaging study of his life and works. As the first comprehensive study of this influential Victorian, the book is an important contribution to military and engineering history as well as to the history of Imperial Britain. Timothy Crick makes extensive use of extracts from Jervois’ diaries in order to present a rounded picture of this Royal Engineer’s wide-ranging career. He traces Jervois’ achievements both within the British Isles and in Empire outposts as far afield as Canada, Bermuda, India, Australia and New Zealand.
