This was an excellent series of 3 lectures on key battles in the Hundred Years War between England and France. Dr. Rogers goes relatively deep into the tactics and then discusses the strategic long-term effects of the battles. He explained in the first lecture how some historians downplay the importance of these battles, when in fact they had an important effect on the people of the time, leading to social changes. The English had the advantage of longbows, which were wielded by the lower classes. This was around the time that the House of Commons gained in power.
Lecture was informative, detailed, interesting and presented in a manner to appeal to more than history nerds.
