My book is called „Neuherfürgegebene Kriegsarchitectur“ and is about new ideas of fortress architecture and war buildings.
When I used Alice for the first time, to find books that are somehow related to my book, I first thought of key words to use. Since my book is about war, I tried this key word first. 10 000 results popped up, which were too much to look through, so I decided to use a more specific word related to the content of my book.
„Fortification“ was the second key word I tried and that brought me to the book „The Art of War“ by Machiavelli. This book is about war theory and military strategies. It analyses different strategies and tells you how to wage a war. I think it is important to understand the diverse strategies of war to build military buildings with greater security. My book #149 focuses on buildings and ways to provide them with a higher level of security. To write and understand my book, at first „The Art of War“ should be understood.
The second book that is important and related to my book is called „La military Architettura” by Capitan Pietro Ruggiero. The book is a piece of technical literature on modern military fortresses. It deals with 17th century military buildings, almost the same topic as my book. A difference that can be seen between those two books is, that it is written from a personal point of view and #149 isn’t.
In the end, I was interested in what the results would be, if I would ask Alice for the title of my book and I wanted to see, if other books used my book as a reference. However, this lead me to a dead end.
