Most warfare that was fought in England was long and costly sieges. Some of the weapons they used in war were swords and flails. They usually wore doublets and suits of armor. In the Campaign of Crécy in 1346, Edward the III and his army invaded Normandy with an army between twelve thousand and sixteen thousand. Over half of them were longbow men. Edward led his army on a chevauchée, which is a horse ride or plundering raid. The Black Prince, (Edward, prince of Wales) invaded France again after their victory and Crécy. They were facing a general so ugly,(Bertrand de Guesclin) he was called a hog in armor. But the British won again. The English also fought a war called the Hundred Years’ War. It was fought between Britain and France. The first important battle took place at sea, off the Flemish port of Sluys. On their ships, England carried 4000 men at arms and 12000 archers.
