Arms, armies, and fortifications in the Hundred Years War by Anne Curry( )

17 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From a practical start, a general review of battle tactics, the book turns to archival sources (at points enlisting computer analysis) to examine a number of basic issues. These cover the composition of the English army throughout the period, the management of affairs in Aquitaine together with Gascon reaction, the response in England at large to the war and the consequent propaganda and financial burdens, and (reviewing French work) the impact of warfare on local communities. Archaeological, architectural and documentary evidence is also used, to reveal surprising activity on the English coast, both defensive and offensive; and close study of surviving artefacts - specifically artillery pieces, longbows, nautical remains and church monuments - makes possible realistic assessments of military and naval capabilities and experiences. These studies of aspects of the Hundred Years War offer a fresh and exiting approach to a fascinating and popular subject; their combined effect is to give a very real insight, drawing on all manner of practical evidence, into the realities of warfare in the middle ages
Agincourt : a new history by Anne Curry( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As night fell in Picardy on Thursday 24 October 1415, Henry V and his English troops, worn down by their long march after the taking of Harfleur and diminished by the dysentery they had suffered there, can little have dreamt that the battle of the next day would provide them with one of the most complete victories ever won. Anne Curry's startling history recreates the campaign and battle from the perspectives of the English and the French. Only now, through an in-depth investigation of the contemporary narrative sources as well as the administrative records, and through a new look at the terrain where the battle was fought, can we come to firmer conclusions on what exactly happened, and why. This book, based on years of painstaking research and reflection, makes clear the genius of Henry V as a military leader, and the strengths and capabilities of the English army which he commanded. There can be no doubt of the desire of the French to resist him and to protect their homeland from his invasion. The French fought bravely and to the death. So what went wrong for the French? This question, and many more, are answered in this lively new history

Bosworth 1485 : a battlefield rediscovered by Glenn Foard( )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bosworth stands alongside Naseby and Hastings as one of the three most iconic battles ever fought on English soil. The action on 22 August 1485 brought to an end the dynastic struggle known as the Wars of the Roses and heralded the dawn of the Tudor dynasty. However, Bosworth was also the most famous lost battlefield in England. Between 2005 and 2010, the techniques of battlefield archaeology were used in a major research programme to locate the site. "Bosworth 1485: a battlefield rediscovered" is the result. Using data from historical documents, landscape archeology, metal detecting survey, ballistics and scientific analysis, the volume explores each aspect of the investigation - from the size of the armies, their weaponry, and the battlefield terrain to exciting new evidence of the early use of artillery - in order to identify where and how the fighting took place. Bosworth 1485 provides a fascinating and intricately researched new perspective on the eevnt which, perhaps more than any other, marked the transition between medieval and early modern England
Agincourt by Anne Curry( )

13 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Agincourt (1415) is an exceptionally famous battle, one that has generated a huge and enduring cultural legacy in the six hundred years since it was fought. Everybody thinks they know what the battle was about. Even John Lennon, aged 12, wrote a poem and drew a picture headed 'Agincourt'. But why and how has Agincourt come to mean so much, to so many? Why do so many people claim their ancestors served at the battle? Is the Agincourt of popular image the real Agincourt, or is our idea of the battle simply taken from Shakespeare's famous depiction of it? Written by the world's leading expert on the battle, this book shows just why it has occupied such a key place in English identity and history in the six centuries since it was fought, exploring a cultural legacy that stretches from bowmen to Beatles, via Shakespeare, Dickens, and the First World War. Anne Curry first sets the scene, illuminating how and why the battle was fought, as well as its significance in the wider history of the Hundred Years War
The Battle of Agincourt by Anne Curry( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published in partnership with the Royal Armouries, this comprehensive, sumptuously illustrated volume provides a defining reassessment of England's legendary victory on the fields of Agincourt on October 25, 1415. Dramatized by William Shakespeare in Henry V, the Battle of Agincourt changed the course of the Hundred Years War and Britain's relationship with her longtime enemy, France. In a remarkable work commemorating the 600th anniversary of arguably the most iconic military engagement of the medieval era, a wide range of experts examine the battle in its political, cultural, and geographical contexts, detailing strategies, tactics, armor, weapons, and fighting techniques while exploring the battlefield experiences of commanders and ordinary soldiers alike. In addition, this all-encompassing study offers deep analyses of many artifacts and aspects of the battle and its aftermath that have rarely been covered in other histories, including medicine and hygiene, the roles of faith and chivalry, the music of the times, and the experiences of women."--Publisher's web site
The soldier in later medieval England by Adrian R Bell( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Hundred Years War was a struggle for control over the French throne, fought as a series of conflicts between England, France, and their respective allies. The Soldier in Later Medieval England is the outcome of a project which collects the names of every soldier known to have served the English Crown from 1369 to the loss of Gascony in 1453, the event which is traditionally accepted as the end-date of the Hundred Years War. The data gathered throughout the project has allowed the authors of this volume to compare different forms of war, such as the chevauchees of the late fourteenth century and the occupation of French territories in the fifteenth century, and thus to identify longer-term trends. It also highlights the significance of the change of dynasty in England in the early 1400s."--Jacket

Der Hundertjährige Krieg (1337-1453) by Anne Curry( Book )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in German and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1429 gelang es Jeanne d'Arc, den englischen Belagerungsring um Orléans, dem Schlüssel zu Südfrankreich, zu sprengen. Damit begann die Wende im Hundertjährigen Krieg (1337-1453), in dem zeitweise halb Frankreich von den Engländern besetzt war. Nach dem Tod Karls IV. erhob der englische König Ansprüche auf den französischen Thron. Dies führte zu dem dramatischsten kriegerischen Großereignis des Spätmittelalters. Anne Curry gelingt es, die wechselvollen Auseinandersetzungen zwischen dem Haus Valois, den englischen Königen und den verbündeten Burgundern sowie den Bürgerkrieg zwischen den Armagnacs
Agincourt, 1415 : Henry V, Sir Thomas Erpingham and the triumph of the English archers( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stenton's Anglo-Saxon England fifty years on : papers given at a colloquium held at Reading 11-12 November 1993( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stenton's Anglo-Saxon England was first published during the Second World War and immediately welcomed as the first scholarly account of those formative years of English history. It has held its place as the standard work on the period for fifty years. Scholarly interests have, however, inevitably changed over such a long period and it seemed appropriate to celebrate its half-century by attempting to give it critical assessment in a colloquium organised at Reading. The papers given on that occasion are published in this book."--BOOK JACKET
Henry V : playboy prince to warrior king by Anne Curry( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henry V's invasion of France, in August 1415, represented a huge gamble. As heir to the throne, he had been a failure, cast into the political wilderness amid rumours that he planned to depose his father. Despite a complete change of character as king - founding monasteries, persecuting heretics, and enforcing the law to its extremes - little had gone right since. He was insecure in his kingdom, his reputation low. On the eve of his departure for France, he uncovered a plot by some of his closest associates to remove him from power. Agincourt was a battle that Henry should not have won - but he did, and the rest is history. Within five years, he was heir to the throne of France. In this vivid new interpretation, Anne Curry explores how Henry's hyperactive efforts to expunge his past failures, and his experience of crisis - which threatened to ruin everything he had struggled to achieve - defined his kingship, and how his astonishing success at Agincourt transformed his standing in the eyes of his contemporaries, and of all generations to come."--Publisher's information
Agincourt 1415 by Will Gill( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The battle of Agincourt still rings down through the centuries as a quite incredible victory by the outnumbered, happy few of England, enfeebled by disease and exhaustion, against the might of French chivalry. For many commentators then and now, it was the English archers who won the day for Henry V. This history re-tells the story of the battle and Henry V's Normandy campaign from the perspective of the reputed commander of the English archers, Sir Thomas Erpingham"--Global Books in Print
1415 Agincourt : a New History by Anne Curry( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many commentators then and now, it was the English archers who won the day for Henry V. This lavishly illustrated history re-tells the story of the battle and Henry V's Normandy campaign from the perspective of the commander of the English archers, Sir Thomas Erpingham. Sir Thomas, an experienced warrior with military experience dating back 40 years is known for his brief but pivotal appearances in Shakespeare's Henry V, where he is correctly portrayed as an elderly, white haired veteran. At 57 he was one of the oldest there and a close personal confident of the King. But what was his background? How did he command his archers to such a place in history? And what role did the longbow and battlefield tactics play in the final analysis of victory?
