Overview

Although the term "Hundred Years War" was not coined until the 1860s, the Anglo-French conflicts of the later Middle Ages have long been of interest to historians. This book, now fully revised to take account of recent scholarship, explores the trends in historical opinion from the time of the wars to the present day. It provides a straightforward narrative of English involvement in France, placing the well known military events in their diplomatic context. By focusing on the treaties of 1259, 1360 and 1420, Anne Curry suggests that there was not one "hundred year war" but rather three separate yet linked conflicts, all with significant implications for the European scene as a whole.
