Description - French Castles of the Hundred Years War by Stephane William Gondoin
The Hundred Years War, 1337 to 1453, was the dynastic struggle between the French Capetians and the English Plantaganets and Lancastrians for the throne of a united France. It began as a series of raiding wars fought on French soil and developed into expeditionary wars fuelled by the territorial ambitions of a succession of English Kings, from Edward III to Henry V. This first volume in a new series of illustrated histories of medieval castles provides an in-depth guide to the main castles of the great Capetian kings, from Chateau Gaillard to the Castel de Coucy. The authors are both specialist historians and 3-D illustrators at the peak of their craft. This book represents the product of years of their research and detailed work. Illustrated in full colour throughout, it includes 3-D computer-generated reconstructions of the castles, battle scenes. This (and the subsequent volumes) will provide a complete reinterpretation of the classification of the medieval castle.
