Jean Froissart (1337-1410) was the world’s first great war correspondent, covering the great age of the Hundred Years War. His Chronicles deliver a contemporary perspective on the latest Medieval news-from the crowning of Edward III to the downfall of Richard II-made all the richer by Froissart’s clear enthusiasm as he files his reports from the front lines of history. Included here: Froissart’s famous court’s eye descriptions of the “Black Death,” the Siege of Calais, jousting, and chivalry in action on the battlefields of Crécy and Poitiers.

About the Author

Jean Froissart (1337–1405) was a medieval author and court historian from the Low Countries, who wrote several works, including Chronicles and Meliador, a long Arthurian romance, and a large body of poetry, both short lyrical forms, as well as longer narrative poems. For centuries, Froissart’s Chronicles have been recognised as the chief expression of the chivalric revival of the 14th century Kingdom of England and Kingdom of France. His history is also an important source for the first half of the Hundred Years’ War.
