"This book isn't for those searching for information on life in colonial Spain, but rather a concise examination of Spain's defenses -- design, technology and history -- in the New World... The Spanish Main presents Latin American history from a different perspective than that usually found in books focusing on pirates... This is a worthy read for those interested in the 'other side.'" --Cindy Vallar, The Pyrates Way, a Magazine for Pyrates (January 5, 2008)"The author does an excellent job of showing the stages in growth of the key fortified sites at Havana, San Juan, Cartagena, Vera Cruz and other important locations including on the Pacific Coast of Panama and Acapulco... The certainly a must for anyone interested in Spanish coastal fortifications in America." --J. E. Kaufmann, Site O Newsletter
