Throughout most of the late medieval period, from 1300 to 1500, England and France were bitter enemies, often at war or on the brink of it.

Richardson offers a bold new appraisal of this remarkable historical event, describing the preparations and execution of the magnificent gathering, exploring its ramifications, and arguing that it was far more than the extravagant elitist theater and cynical charade it historically has been considered to be"--"@en ;
