Re:Crecy. The French also didnt read their Sun Tzu . The french infantry never made it to the battle and the Knights decided to go it alone. I am an avid reader of the 100 years war series by Jonathan Sumption. 3 fat books so far and Joan of Arc hasnt even been mentioned so far .
Re sieges, especially in the 100 years war, the bigger the castle or town the better, because besieging big places required bigger armies that usually ran out of food much faster than the besieged. Thats why the English never seriously attacked Paris.
Screen shot of the 2000 year old Roman wreck in 2000m of water in Black Sea discovered in the year 2017.
Is about Roman ship lying in over 2,000 meters of water, with its mast still standing, both quarter rudders with their tillers still attached and the yards lying on deck where they fell. Rope is still draped over the frames due to the extraordinary preservation of organic materials in the Black Sea’s anoxic conditions.
The Château de Falaise is a castle located in the south of the commune of Falaise ("cliff" in French) in the département of Calvados, in the region of Normandy, France. William the Conqueror, the son of Duke Robert of Normandy, was born at an earlier castle on the same site in about 1028. William went on to conquer England and become king, and possession of the castle descended through his heirs until the 13th century when it was captured by King Philip II of France.
Possession of the castle changed hands several times during the Hundred Years' War. The castle was abandoned during the 17th century. Since 1840 it has been protected as a monument historique.
