Chapter Summary

The idea that two nations could fight a war lasting more than a century, as France and England did in the last two centuries of the Middle Ages, seems to most modern military historians to be the very definition of the words ?medieval warfare.? In fact, the Hundred Years War was not fought only during the period 1337?1453, the most commonly given dates, nor was it fought only by England and France. The Anglo-Scottish chronology makes clear several ways in which Scotland both influenced and entered into the Hundred Years War. While the connection of the Holy Roman Empire to the Hundred Years War is less noteworthy than that of Scotland, there are several things that do stand out. While German and Scottish troops actually served in the Low Countries and France during the Hundred Years War, it was primarily the other way round in the case of Iberia.
