    I have almost finished "The Hundred Years War" by Desmond Seward. Excellent book. I think I finally understand why the French hate the English so much. Those chevauchees were ugly.

    Also you have a very nice site!! I just added it to my Medieval Favorites sites.

    Do you have the ISBN number for that, I will give it a look.

    Im currently looking at about 4/5 books on the subject

    Arms, Armies and Fortifications in the 100 years war, is a very good book - ISBN 0851157556 - Anne Curry

    The hundred years war - Robin Neillands - ISBN 0415261309 is also a good read.

    Osprey do a number of books on the subject:

    French armies of the 100 years war
    Armies of Crecy and poitiers
    Agincourt.

    However, a must to read is Joan of Arc – A military leader by Kelly Devries (ISBN 0-7509-1805-5) - This is a very good book, I couldnt put it down

    And to the point about:

    Quote I think I finally understand why the French hate the English so much. Those chevauchees were ugly. [/QUOTE]

    It is quite interesting, the war was caused in part by the fact that a french faction invaded england in 1066, so initially they were the cause. If this had not happened the English Kings would not have had a claim on the French throne. Also dont forget finally the War turned into a French Cival war (Bugundy)

    Another interesting point is Gascony was part of England for a long time with very little problems.... There is tons of info about the war which the French authorities wont release/ translate. This details everyday life etc.....

    HOWEVER, I find this whole campaign truely interesting
