Defending Your Castle

Jun 17, 2014

Category: Entertainment

Whether it’s termites, trick-or-treaters, or the most insidious of all invaders, the mother-in-law, our homes are constantly under assault. But what if things got serious? Like, really serious. Would you know how to fend off an onslaught by Attila and the Huns, Ragnar and the Vikings, Alexander and the Greeks, Genghis Khan and the Mongols, or Tamerlane and the Tartars?

Defending Your Castle: Build Catapults, Crossbows, Moats, Bulletproof Shields, and More Defensive Devices to Fend Off the Invading Hordes is a very long title for a pretty short book (176 pages) by author William Gurstelle, and as you can guess, it’s all about showing you how to protect your home from any unsavory types who’ve watched The Purge too many times. We’re not sure how the authorities will feel about the arsenal of ancient artillery and fortifications on your lawn, but it’s better to ask forgiveness than permission. [Purchase]
