Based on a wide range of contemporary sources, both printed and unprinted, and coloured by a lively historical imagination, Trial by Fire is the absorbing continuation of Jonathan Sumption's 'immensely impressive history' (Daily Telegraph).

France in 1347 was in a state close to collapse, after a decade of continual invasion and the defeats at Crecy and Calais. The next 22 years saw further humiliations: the Battle of Poitiers, a revolution in Paris, and the capture of King John II of France, followed by nine years of uncertain peace in the 1360s. The English and their allies had destroyed much of France - but they lacked the resources to occupy it, and although France was defeated, England was by no means victorious.
