THE BLACK PRINCE'S EXPEDITION

by H. J. Hewitt

Edward, the Black Prince, is one of the legendary figures of English history. The first son of Edward III and an outstanding military leader, he is famous for his decisive victory at the Battle of Poitiers, and he is one of the most charismatic characters of the Hundred Years' War. This classic study focuses on his daring campaign against the French in central and south western France in 1355-7. This is one of the key texts on the Prince, and it will be fascinating reading for anyone who is interested in medieval warfare.
