With additional contributions from Françoise Autrand, Christophe Piel, Michael Prestwich, and Bertrand Schnerb. The battle of Crécy is of huge significance for both the course of the Hundred Years War and the continent of Europe as a whole. It witnessed the defeat of the greatest power in Christendom - a major French army with the king at its head - by an expeditionary force raised by a kingdom which was not yet renowned for its military prowess. Yet it is Agincourt which has engaged the popular imagination, and Crécy has been neglected. This book to fills this gap in knowledge. It outlines the events of the campaign in Normandy and Ponthieu of which Crécy was the culmination, and offers new analyses and interpretations of all aspects of the battle, from the composition of the armies to the place of the battlefield. It will therefore be of major interest for any student of medieval or military history.
