In Response To: Re: French Fortification ()

While the simple answered as to "based on Vauban" is: yes; yet the fuller answer is an update of Vauban. For this, see the developments by the likes of Duvignau, Haxo and Chasseloup as outlined starting on page 39 ff in Aide-mémoire to the Military Sciences cited and linked below.

The use of Vauban defences follows the same, yet in some places outside of France, such as Alessandria, meant the French did not rely solely on the past.
