https://flic.kr/p/U6jEwZ | Spanish Colonial Outpost | To maintain its imperial power around the world, Spain built fortifications across the continents. These outposts were established along Spanish borders from the late sixteenth century onwards to defend its interests against rival European powers and to suppress uprisings of the native population. The iconic lookout tower has been used throughout the fortifications built by the Spaniards.
French lookouts posted in a barbed-wire-covered trench. The use of barbed wire in warfare was recent, having only been used for the first time in limited form during the Spanish-American War. All sides in World War I used extensive networks of barbed wire entanglements to prevent ground troops from moving forward. The effectiveness of the wire drove the development of technologies like the tank, and wire-cutting explosive shells set to detonate the instant they made contact with a wire.
