For more than a hundred years England invaded France several times under the pretext that its kings had the right to the French throne.France was a big, heavy Kingdom, England was small and poor, but most of the time it dominated war, sacking cities and castles and winning battles – including such glorious victories as Crécy, Poitiers and Azincourt, but the English series of success then began in case of failure, and in four years it lost Normandy and finally its last.The protagonists of the Hundred Years’ War are among the most colourful in European history: for the English, Edward III, the Black Prince and Henri V, later immortalized by Shakespeare; for the Frenchman, the splendid but inept John II, who died a prisoner in London, Charles V, who overcame England very closely and the enigmatic Charles VII, who would finally lead the British to the end of the war.Compte de Desmond Seward recounts the changes that led to the victory of France and gives life to all the intrigues and color of the last chivalry fights, as they gave way to a more brutal modern war.
