1-223940 Ballard, Richard England, France and Aquitaine - From Victory to Defeat in the Hundred Years War This is a narrative history of England and France during the Hundred Years War, from the triumphs of Henry V to the defeat of the English and loss of Gascony and Bordeaux - a huge blow to English prestige and economic interest.

This is a military history with technical detail, linked to high politics, courtly intrigue, dynastic ambition, and economic interest (wine trade and Bordeaux). The story revolves around the death of two Kings, Henry V of England, soon after his military triumphs, and Charles VI of France, in 1422. Both had historic claims to the 'French fiefs'. Henry was succeeded by Richard II, and Charles was succeeded by Charles VII. The contrast could hardly have been greater between Richard, a diffident, scholarly and religious figure, in an age when kings were expected to be aggressive leaders and military commanders; and Charles - an able politician, soldier and, in modern parlance, a 'hard man', who embodied the 15th century concept of kingship.

Intermittent but constant warfare continued until English defeat in 1476 and the loss of Gascony and Bordeaux, and the Peace of Picquigny brought to an end a decisive episode in the Hundred Years War, foreshadowing England's future total withdrawal from France.

1-666137 Abad, Ruben La conquista de Canarias 1402-1496 It is hard to believe, but there are still episodes of the history of Spain unknown to the vast majority of Spaniards. Without a doubt, the conquest of the Canary Islands is one of them. There are hardly any easily accessible works that explain the events that led to the archipelago becoming part of the kingdom of the Catholic Monarchs. B/w and color illust.

Its pages contain the gripping account of the conquest of a rugged territory populated by tribes fiercely jealous of their freedom who resisted being colonized by iron-covered foreigners who carried a strange religion. It took considerable human and material effort and the use of all resources within the reach of a modern army such as spanish, to impose themselves on warriors experts in guerrilla warfare and hand-to-hand combat who were able to make the most of a terrain they knew perfectly.
