Product Description

The Hundred Years War is often dismissed with a few lines in textbooks, or written about in purely academic terms. This accessible account of England and France's series of wars from 1337-1453 highlights the accounts of the kings, peasants and events that dominated the wars. Featuring some of the most colorful men in Europe's history, including Henry V and Charles VII, this is a fascinating account that is all too often overlooked. 296 pages, indexed. Softcover.

Publisher's Description

From 1337 to 1453 England repeatedly invaded France on the pretext that her kings had a right to the French throne. Though it was a small, poor country, England for most of those "hundred years" won the battles, sacked the towns and castles, and dominated the war. The protagonists of the Hundred Years War are among the most colorful in European history: Edward III, the Black Prince; Henry V, who was later immortalized by Shakespeare; the splendid but inept John II, who died a prisoner in London; Charles V, who very nearly overcame England; and the enigmatic Charles VII, who at last drove the English out. Desmond Seward's critically-acclaimed account of the Hundred Years War brings to life all of the intrigue, beauty, and royal to-the-death-fighting of that legendary century-long conflict.

Author Bio
