  • 1 thought on “Bowman of Crécy”

    1. Part of a sequence which traces British history through the story of one family. Judged against contemporary style and mores, this might seem a somewhat sentimental and unreconstructed piece of writing, but its celebration of (manly) virtue and activity (which, by the way, positively does not embrace a celebration of war)combines with careful use of historical detail to make an interesting read.
