In 100 Battles you will also learn about one of the first confrontations between England and France, the Battle of Crecy (1346), in which the English infantry proved it could defeat the mighty French knights. Ranging from the charge of the cavalry and brutal hand-to-hand combat to the use of smart bombs , 100 Battles That Shaped World History provides engaging, clear, concise and accurate accounts of important battles fought on the land, sea and air. 100 Battles also covers many significant milestones achieved in the development and evolution of tactics, weapons, armor, communications, and fortifications.
