Defending Your Castle by William Gurstelle Inspires Playful Protection

The latest 'Game of Thrones' episode may inspire some to pick up a copy of 'Defending Your Castle: Build Catapults, Crossbows, Moats, Bulletproof Shields, and More Defensive Devices to Fend Off the Invading Hordes.' It is a book that predominantly looks to the Medieval era for inspiration on security tactics for the home. Perhaps if Jon Snow and his band of merry crows each had a copy, they would have been able to avoid so many deaths.

Written by William Gurstelle, 'Defending Your Castle' offers a tongue-in-cheek look at home defense. Complete with diagrams and photographs, it provides step-by-step instructions on how to build a variety of implements. Of course, Uncrate points out that many of the contraptions "are sure to keep you safe, and more than likely piss off the president of your HOA."
