The Hundred Years WarBook - 1991-
Initiating a projected history of the Hundred Years War, from its outbreak in the 1330s until the final expulsion of the English from France in the middle of the 15th century, this volume concentrates on the early years of the war. Sumption traces the origin of the conflict, the early humiliations and triumphs of Edward III, and the great campaigns of Sluys, Crecy, and Calais, which first made the king's name as war leader and established the reputation of his subjects as the most brutally effective warriors of their time. Acidic paper. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
