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.
