BY FIRE AND SWORD : THE RISE AND FALL OF ENGLISH SUPREMACY AT ARMS, 1314-1485
Category: Medieval history
From 1314 to 1485, England fought a continuous war with its neighbours. The author proposes that England's ability to discipline, provision and finance such a long campaign was at the heart of its success. Interweaving his argument with main events of the campaigns, he presents a perspective on the turning point in English history.
