BRIEF HISTORY OF MEDIEVAL WARFARE


BRIEF HISTORY OF MEDIEVAL WARFARE

PETER REID    Book Number: 82886    Product format: Paperback

A companion to A Brief History of Life in the Middle Ages code 82885, Reid interweaves his analysis with a dramatic telling of the main events on land and sea. From the terrible defeat at Bannockburn to the point when Henry VI was crowned in Paris, and the eventual slide into the bloody internal strife of the Wars of the Roses, the narrative is excitingly told and powerfully persuasive, giving a fresh perspective to the conflicts of the medieval period. The book explains why England's armies were triumphant and what led to their downfall. For 150 years from 1314 to 1485, England fought an almost continuous war with her neighbours. The period saw the unprecedented supremacy of the English armies over those of Scotland and France and Reid proposes that the key to England's success lay in expert, well-financed preparations with a long-view approach to warfare. 561pp in paperback with maps and eight pages of colour photos.
