Hundred Years War English

Historical Overview Section

The war owes its historical significance to multiple factors. By its end, feudal armies had been largely replaced by professional troops, and aristocratic dominance had yielded to a democratisation of the manpower and weapons of armies. Although primarily a dynastic conflict, the war gave impetus to ideas of French and English nationalism. The wider introduction of weapons and tactics supplanted the feudal armies where heavy cavalry had dominated. The war precipitated the creation of the first standing armies in Western Europe since the time of the Western Roman Empire, composed largely of commoners and thus helping to change their role in warfare. With respect to the belligerents, English political forces over time came to oppose the costly venture. The dissatisfaction of English nobles, resulting from the loss of their continental landholdings, became a factor leading to the civil wars known as the Wars of the Roses (1455–1487). In France, civil wars, deadly epidemics, famines, and bandit free-companies of mercenaries reduced the population drastically. Shorn of its continental possessions, England was left with the sense of being an island nation, which profoundly affected its outlook and development for more than 500 years.

Using the army in ADLG

  • Longbowmen will not win the battle alone. They are the key component, not the magic bullet of this army
  • Allies may be useful to get you above the magic 20 units, as everything here is expensive
  • Alternatively, just go with near-100% combat capable troops, as padding it out with skirmishers to boost the unit count is not that useful. Longbow fear no other shooters, and dismounted knights are impervious to skirmisher damage too
