A good introduction to this long, sprawling conflict, which is especially strong on the grand strategy of the war. ( )

Very short book on a very large and complex subject. Part of a series called "Essential Histories" all of which follow the same layout and format, commissioned by Osprey Publishing to academic authors. Graphics are excellent. The content quality of this series varies widely, this volume by Anne Curry is generally regarded as one of the better ones. For a 4 or 5 hour overview it is very good. I wish she had provided more historical contextual insight, as to why events were important - but she can not be faulted for sticking to the facts. ( )

One of the first things students learn about the Hundred Years War is that it lasted 116 years -- from 1337, when Philip VI confiscated the French lands of Edward III, to 1453, which English Gascony fell to the French.
