Didn’t know anything about the hundred years war before and now I know one or two things about it. Good book, who knew there were lots of people rioting in England in the late fourteenth and early fifteenth century. According to some commentators of recent riots, it’s all down to rap music, video games and suchlike (this article in The Economist rounds it all up nicely). Nothing like it ever happened before ever ever. Journalists on some papers should definitely read more books.
