Lazy Blog Post: The Battle of Crecy

Per Wikipedia:

"The Battle of Crécy took place on 26 August 1346 near Crécy in northern France, and was one of the most important battles of the Hundred Years' War. The combination of new weapons and tactics has caused many historians to consider this battle the beginning of the end of classic chivalry."


  1. If you haven't already, I recommend reading The Archer's Tale by Bernard Cornwell. It's about a longbowman who fights at Crecy (and other places).

  2. Don't forget Warren Ellis' delightfully foul-mouthed comic of the same name. All you need to know about Crecy in pics and swearing.
