The Hundred Years War is a lively survey, re-creating the vigour of this turbulent epoch stretching from 1152 to 1453. The Hundred Years War was the longest war in European history, a war which brought fundamental change in two medieval societies, and ushered in the Renaissance.
The story of the conflict, its causes, battles, political struggles and consequences are told with colour and detail. This revised edition brings the scholarship on the conflict up to date and adds a new postscript examining the armies of the era.
