What caused the conflict we call �the Hundred Years War�? Can you explain why the English lost the war?
This question relies on �Blackboard: BBC History: The Hundred Years War by Maurice Keen�; and Short History, p. 22. The paper has to explain why the war started; and then it has to consider how the English kings managed the war, as they tried to achieve their objectives (which the paper has to explain). The English commanders�King Edward III and his son, Edward, the Black Prince, and then, later on, King Henry V�were able to win major battles against the French. English armies regularly went on chevauch�es through the French countryside. But the English did not win the war. What do you think went wrong?
