This episode covers the epic struggle between England and France for the French throne which lasted for over a century. It covers everything from Edward III's victory at Crécy and the Black Prince's triumph at Poitiers all the way to the French victory in 1453. All of the major battles, such as Sluys, Agincourt and Orléans are covered as well as the political intrigues in both kingdoms.
Michael Prestwich - The Hundred Years' War - Probably the best narrative overview of the war.
Johnathan Sumption's series of the Hundred Years' War is phenomenal and insanely deep but it will cost you an arm for all of the books. Genuinely don't bother unless you're an undergrad or very interested.
Ten Minute English and British History is a series of short, ten minute animated narrative documentaries that are designed as revision refreshers or simple introductions to a topic. Please note that these are not meant to be comprehensive and there's a lot of stuff I couldn't fit into the episodes that I would have liked to. Thank you for watching, though, it's always appreciated.
