Best One Volume History,
This review is from: Great and Glorious Adventure, A: A Military History of the Hundred Years War (Hardcover)
of the Hundred Years War that I have read - and I have read several.
Corrigan writes clearly and entertainingly about a quite confusing period of history. As the title makes clear his focus is on the military but he does not ignore other aspects such as religion and social factors.
I think some of the comments made in the 3 star reviews are a little harsh. Corrigan does not pretend to write a balanced account of the conflict; it is intended for the general reader not specialists, and as such he does an excellent job.
