Great Research

Well-written and based on what appears to be careful research. One hopes that this author will continue this look at history. I have traveled a little in France and seen some of the towns named in the series as well as Paris.

Lovely

The author writes with a strong voice, rarely flagging presumptions or results as such. Care must be taken to cross-reference his discussion where it differs from the narration of a set of factual events.

The Hundred Years’ War

The book is everything it promises, with one exception. This author is an extraordinary advocate, historian, and writer, but he wrote volume one before this one.

Extremely Good

This book offers a quick and reasonably short summary of what must have been one of the worst periods of European history. Battle after battle, siege after siege, French and British killed each other mercilessly for the command over the sources of France, the whole time under a code of practice that today we have great difficulty in understanding.

I Recommend It

This book is unquestionably one of those short and sweet examples when it comes to non-fiction. It provides you just enough knowledge for you to get a grip on the whole condition but not too much to make you feel smothered.

Enlightening

This is a good initiation to the period and provides a firm basis for interpreting the subsequent events of the War of the Roses and the rise of the House of Tudor.
