A Sound Defense

Military Historical Sites of Puget Sound

Each chapter of the book addresses the local history of twelve counties surrounding or leading into Puget Sound.  

Forts,  ships, lighthouses, museums, significant battles, and memorials are vividly described county by county. Veterans who served at the installations will be reminded by old pictures of their days there and their own contributions.

Local historians will gain an additional perspective of their local areas. Visitors to Western Washington will gain a new understanding of the area they visit.

Students will have a valuable reference for continued studies of the rich history of Western Washington.
