Page 5 It should be agreed that medieval military history includes many battles which were nothing but hasty, instinctive and confused confrontations in which captains played the role of simple leaders of men, incorporated almost anonymously into the first line of battle, and where the warriors' chief concern was to find an adversary worthy of rank or valour, without any preoccupation for their companions in arms.
The Black Death, which begins in Europe in 1347, changed the nature of warfare for the remainder of the Hundred Years War. Thus while there is surely some comparison between the battle of Poitiers, fought in 1356, and those battles which are discussed here, the difference in sizes of English and French forces at Poitiers and those at Crécy must be ascribed to the loss of population. The decision of 1302 as the beginning point of the study is perhaps more difficult to explain. In choosing to begin there, I have decided to follow Verbruggen's lead in recognizing the originality of the battle of Courtrai rather than moving the chronological time-frame back to the battles of Woeringen, Stirling Bridge, or Falkirk, despite some similarities between those battles and the ones which are included in this book.
