This is an auction for THE HUNDRED YEARS WAR: A MILITARY HISTORY, by Alfred H Burne.

This is a Folio Society book, in new condition, in its original slip case.

Introduction by Jonathan Sumption. reviews:

"The Hundred Years War between England and France began in 1337 with Edward III's claim to the throne of France. The tumultuous years that followed witnessed some of the greatest battles in history: Crecy, Poitiers, Agincourt. Although the English leaders - Edward III, the Black Prince and Henry V - fought valiantly, often achieving amazing victories against the odds, it was the French who won the war. Here, together for the first time, are A.H. Burne's books on this colourful period, "The Crecy War" and "The Agincourt War". Alongside the vivid description of individual campaigns, Burne - acclaimed as "one of the best military historians" - introduces some of the most celebrated historical figures, including famous French warriors, such as Bertrand de Guesclin, La Hire and Joan of Arc."

"If you are truly serious about understanding the Hundred Years War, a conflict that defined England and France as nations, this book is for you. Lt. Colonel Burne was a British artillery officer in World War I so he had the ideal background to write such a book as this. He starts the book with Edward III and that monarch's motivations for pursuing the war, which Burne is at pains to explain was not originally to gain the French Crown but simply to regain the lands lost by Edward's incompetent great-great grandfather John Lackland."
