Abstract

The papers in this session deal with three different but closely-related aspects of the organisation of war within Britain and northern France during the reign of King Edward III. The first paper compares the methods employed by the English and Scottish governments to pursue the war in 1336; the second considers the logistical efforts made to transport and supply English forces in Brittany during 1342-3; the third focuses on the composition of English garrison forces in France during the final part of the reign and the responsibilities exercised by the captains of those garrisons.
