Description

The fourteenth and fifteenth centuries were a time of great upheaval for medieval France.

In 1328 the Capetian line came to an end. This was the trigger for the Hundred Years War (1337-1453) as successive English kings attempted to uphold their claim to the French throne.

Catastrophic defeats at Crecy and Poitiers shook the French kingdom to its core.

A period of respite followed under Bertrand du Guesclin, but an even more devastating assault was to follow, under the warrior-king par excellence Henry V, and the French disintegration continued until 1429.

This book details how the French began a recovery, partly triggered by the young visionary Joan of Arc, that would end with them as the major European military power.
