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.
