What is a Tower?

I've been searching a lot on google and I can find what mean :

we have a partial ordered tower : G -> H -> ... -> K

what does it implie on this morphism? or on this group?

Thank you

My guess is that when you have some (subfield) diagram like

G
|
H
|
...
|
K

then that configuration where there is just one single column is referred to, without any precise definition, as a tower (says my textbook...)
