In Bronze Dawn, Forts primarily serve several purposes - they defend your borders with their awesome offensive power, boost your territory size, and also recruit Generals and mercenaries. They are powerful, although if attacked with vast numbers of assault infantry, can easily be whittled down. Siege weapons, such as Battering Rams and Mo Zi's Trebuchets, can only make them go down faster. Thus Forts, while useful, should not be relied on their own, but be supported with your units whereso possible.
A Citadel is a more powerful version of the Fort, and is in effect a separate building. Unlike Forts, Citadels however are highly defensive and must be built in the vicinity of large cities. Only one Citadel may be built per settlement in this way.
