The Hundred Years War, Volume 2: Trial by Fire by Jonathan Sumption massive just like the first volume that I reviewed last year. This takes the conflict through 1347. Most of the narrative discusses the various attempts at peace. There's also quite a bit on the different Companies freebooters who turned much of France into an ungovernable wasteland. A 3rd volume has been released. I have to wonder if he's actually going to be able to finish the war they seem to be coming out about once a decade.
