Post subject:  Definitions: Bridge Head (La Tete du Pont)

This is a work that consists of one or more bastions or redans and it is constructed on a river bank and it is meant to cover a bridge in order to protect a retiring army when they are crossing the river. It can also be used to "check" an enemy when pressing upon it.
