Abstract:

"In War Cruel and Sharp, Dr. Rogers offers a researched reassessment of the military and political strategies which Edward III and the Black Prince employed to achieve this astounding result. Using a narrative framework, he makes the case that the Plantagenets' ultimate success came from adapting the strategy which Robert Bruce had used to force the 'Shameful Peace' on England in 1328. Unlike previous historians, Rogers argues that the quest for decisive battle underlay Edward's strategy in every campaign he undertook, though the English also utilized sieges and devastation of the countryside to advance their war efforts."--Jacket.
