More About This Textbook

Overview

This seventh volume of the Journal of Medieval Military History has a particular focus on western Europe in the late middle ages, and specifically the Hundred Years War; however, the breadth and diversity of approaches found in the modern study of medieval military history remains evident. Some essays focus on specific texts and documents, including Jean de Bueil's famous military treatise-cum-novel, Le Jouvencel; other studies in the volume deal with particular campaigns, from naval operations to chevauchées of the mid-fourteenth century. There are also examinations of English military leaders of the Hundred Years War, approaching them from prosopographical and biographical angles. The volume also includes a seminal piece, newly translated from the Dutch, by J.F. Verbruggen, in which he employs the financial records of Ghent and Bruges to illuminate the arms of urban militiamen at the end of the middle ages, and analyzes their significance for the art of war.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Not one of the essays fails to provide something novel and valuable to the student of military history. HOBILAR This issue of the Journal contains innovations. The focus, both geographical and chronological, is markedly narrower than in previous issues; the redesigned cover carries a nicely reproduced illumination; and the reader is offered an index of the contents of all previous issues. (...) The enterprise looks increasingly confident and in good shape. HISTORY
