History

Description:

Jean Froissart (1337-1410) was the world's first great war correspondent, covering the great age of the Hundred Years War. His Chronicles deliver a contemporary perspective on the latest Medieval news-from the crowning of Edward III to the downfall of Richard II-made all the richer by Froissart's clear enthusiasm as he files his reports from the front lines of history. Included here: Froissart's famous court's eye descriptions of the "Black Death," the Siege of Calais, jousting, and chivalry in action on the battlefields of CrEcy and Poitiers.
