This casebook is the most extensive collection of documents ever assembled for the study of one of the famous battles in history. Here we see the Battle of Crécy across the cultural landscape of Europe, through chronicles and letters, through poems and prophecies, through sermons and laments, enabling us to understand the events of 26 August 1346 like never before. Together with other experts, the editors have gathered, edited, and translated over 80 fourteenth-century sources concerning this fascinating and important conflict - sources from Bohemia to France, from Italy to Wales, many here printed or translated for the first time. Original essays provide historical context and literary background to help interpret the battle in light of this new material. Among the discoveries: despite its fame, the location of the battle has been misidentified for centuries, and the actions of the men on both sides of the bloodied field have been completely misunderstood. This unparalleled accumulation of material means that the Battle of Crécy will never be seen the same again.

Review:

An immense collection, followed by a thorough and renewed reflection on a battle as essential to the history of France. Sehepunkte ...The remarkable volume ... is unlike any previous study of the battle of Crecy....The gathering together of this vast range of source materials into a single volume and offering new translations would, in itself, present a remarkable achievement....offers striking new insights about the campaign of 1346 and the battle itself....offers unprecedented access to the sources for the campaign of 1346 and the battle of Crecy both to scholars and to students. -- David Bachrach * The Medieval Review *
