Divided Houses: Hundred Years War III

By

Faber & Faber 1,024pp £40 order from our bookshop

This third volume of Jonathan Sumption’s history of the Hundred Years War covers the period from the reopening of the war in 1369 (and the consequent collapse of the peace terms agreed at Brétigny in 1360) down to the deposing of Richard II in 1399. Since so many other European confrontations were drawn, over these years, into the orbit of the great Anglo-French struggle, this is a particularly complicated period in the history of the war.
