Edward III ranks as one of England's most successful medieval monarchs, achieving stunning military victories in the Hundred Years War, and managing to unite a fractious realm and nobility behind his rule, bolstered by a new emphasis on chivalry and display. This monumental new biography by Mark Ormrod will surely become the standard work on his reign, providing in a whopping 720 pages a richly detailed narrative, comprehensively charting political, military and cultural dimensions. The picture which emerges is an overwhelmingly positive one, showing how Edward (at least in his earlier years) skillfully dealt with the challenges which fourteenth century kingship presented.
