Poitiers 1356 by David Nicolle
Book DescriptionThe battle of Poitiers was one of the most important battles of the first part of the Hundred Years' War between England and France. With an Anglo-Gascon army, the Black Prince carried out a large raid into the heart of France in the summer of 1356, causing King John of France to bring his superior forces south of the Loire. This book details their meeting at Poitiers, where after a hard fight the French were defeated. Large numbers of French were captured, including King John and his son the Dauphin. Poitiers confirmed the Black Prince's military reputation, as well as that of the English.
