The Organisation of War Under Edward III Paperback
by H. J. Hewitt
H.J. Hewitt's classic study looks beyond the succession of campaigns, marches, raids, sieges and pitched battles that punctuated the long reign of Edward III.
He focuses instead on the organization of war - how Edward's armies were raised and trained, how they were transported and supplied, how they fought, and how their fighting affected the lives of the civilians of the time.
The author's lucid and readable analysis gives a fascinating insight into the wars of Edward III against the Scots and the French, and his pioneering work is a key text for the study of medieval military history.
