Review Text

  • By Mr Chairman on 13 September 2000

    Alfred H Burne has written two excellent books which have been been unsurpassed since their original publishing in 1955.The Crecy War is Part One, with Part Two being titled 'The Agincourt War', in which Lt Col Alfred Burne covers every battle and major skirmish between England and France during the Hundred Years War and he has done a very fine job.Burne identifies the ground where the fighting takes place, and with some detailed research into the contemporary chronicles, informs the reader of tactics and numbers involved and killed during each conflict/skirmish. The Crecy War takes in the campaigns in Brittany and the Battle of Morlaix before moving on to Crecy, Mauron, the Grand Chevauchee of Edward, Black Prince of Wales, Poitiers and finishes with a look at France after the treaty of Bretigny in 1360.This is then followed on by The Agincourt War (part two)What is also interesting is that Burne himself saw action during World War II in the same areas covered in this book, so has experience himself of commanding a fighting body of men and the sorts of terrain encountered, some of which had changed little from the medieval period.This book has recently become available in paperback for the first time in years and originally cost in the region of £40.Buy it, it's a bargain !

    This book, and its companion volume, "The Agincourt War" are both out of print, but if you want to understand the military history of the Hundred Years War, they are essential reading.Find them, and enjoy.
