No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This book is an excellent introduction to this eventful  period in history, offering students of history and the Middle Ages a fascinating insight into the reigns of three very different sovereigns:

* Edward I – a confident and masterful conqueror of Wales
* Edward II – defeated by the Scots, humiliated and deposed
* Edward III – triumphant against the French, but reigned through the ravages of plague.

The book focuses on each king's approach to war - an essential determinant of political and constitutional development, and emphasizes how the importance of war stretches far beyond the traditional boundaries of military history.

For any student or researcher of history and the Middle Ages, this highly acclaimed book provides excellent research and course study opportunities.
