Synopsis

WitA journey to France can be a journey through history -- tragic and stirring names like Agincourt, Crecy, Aquitaine and Rouen scatter the countryside. This book introduces us to places of great historical significance, including the spot where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake and a desolate stretch of beach on the Cherbourg peninsula where Edward III knighted the Black Prince.

With photographs, maps, and sidebars, A Traveller's History of the Hundred Years War shows the reader what there is to see and do in the town or at the site today. Many people only remember the Hundred Years War through Shakespeare's famous speeches in Henry V that relate to the Battle of Agincourt. In this excellent book, the author explains how the conflict began, how the tangled dynasties of France and England led to the years of clashing over the royal crowns, and where and how the skirmishes and battles were fought.
