Although he was a poet in the 14th century, French writer Jean Froissart is best known for his historical work "Chronicles." In the work, he explained the events leading up to the Hundred Years' War, and then detailed the battles, strategies, and key figures for the first fifty years of the war. "Chronicles" provides an excellent glimpse into Renaissance history and politics, as well as providing the opinion of a Frenchman on the war itself. Because it is one man's opinion, historians agree that "Chronicles" is a biased piece of work; it cannot be relied upon to provide a completely accurate and impartial account of the Hundred Years' War. Froissart often interjected negative phrases and commentary about the opposing side, and he often exaggerated the casualty rate of the British soldiers. While he never went so far as to be inaccurate about which side won a particular battle, Froissart would focus on the French's strengths and the British's weaknesses. However, there is no doubt that "Chronicles" is an important piece of historical knowledge. Froissart infuses tales of the battles with vivid scenery and imagery. He engages the reader, making the lengthy battle descriptions interesting to read. Included in this selection are accounts of "The Campaign of Crecy," "The Battle of Poitiers," "Wat Tyler's Rebellion," and "The Battle of Otterburn."
