Cogs, Sails and Longbows: Implications of Naval Tactics and Technology in the Hundred Years War

There were several naval engagements during the Hundred Years War. The three that will be looked at in this work are the battle of Sluys in 1340, the battle of Les Espagnols-Sur- Mer in 1350, and the capture of a French fleet from La Rochelle.
