Wignacourt\'s Bastioned Towers is MilitaryArchitecure.com\'s first full feature documentary. Researched and produced by Dr Stephen C. Spiteri Ph.D. it entails a detailed study of the design and construction of the first coastal towers built during the reign of Grand Master Alof de Wignacourt and his successor, Grand Master Lascaris. At the turn of the seventeenth century, these fascinating towers represented a new phase in the Order\'s defensive strategy, one that would lead, eventually, to the fortification of the whole archipelago, and the transformation of Malta into a veritable island-fortress.
