The first of a two-part history of the Hundred Years War looks at the period covering the two major victories at Crecy and Poitiers and the subsequent Treaty of Bretigny that established the British right to territory in France without tribute. Burne argues that while these victories are routinely credited to the Black Prince, Edward III is yet to receive full recognition of his strategic skill and vision.
