Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The thorough and massive use of the sources, both primary and secondary, is perhaps one of the first key features that the reader notes and makes it a valuable work. (...) A compelling read, no doubt a volume that will leave a mark. For those interested in the hundred years war, but not only them, this is essential reading. DE RE MILITARI A highly recommended acquisition for any in-depth, definitive military history collection. THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEWThis must surely be the definitive study of Crécy for many years to come; but it is much more than that. It is the narrative of a fourteenth century army at war. Impressive in its scholarship, immaculately presented, it is an essential item in a medievalist's library. CASEMATEThis is a unique, invaluable collection of the thoughts, conclusions and surmises of some of the best minds that concern themselves with the Hundred Years War; in this case, one of its most famous and fatal battles, which like Agincourt poses fascinating problems of every kind concerning fourteenth and fifteenth-century armies in the field. ROBERT HARDY, CBE, FSAEssays of very high quality. (...) A very fine, scholarly study and eminently readable book which deserves great authority as a study of Crécy. HISTORY A useful addition to the literature and worth reading by anyone with any interest in its topic. JOURNAL OF MILITARY HISTORY (US)
Das Buch empfiehlt sich ganz sicher als eine seriöse und aufschlureiche Materialsammlung zur Schlacht von Crécy. HISTORISCHE ZEITSCHRIFTMit diesem Buch liegt nicht nur eine detaillierte Analyse der Schlacht von Crécy vor, es liefert auch ein Beispiel dafür, wie eine auf militärisch-organisatorische Aspekte abzielende Kriegsgeschichte des Mittelalters heute geschrieben werden muss.MARTIN CLAUSS, H-SOZ-U-KULT
