Review Well written and gives a lot of information. (...) All the essential information is there and the reader will gain insight into how the battle (of Poitiers) took place. --Medieal Warfare

Hoskins' book is a valuable and insightful contribution to our knowledge of the road to Poitiers and the strategy of the medieval English chevauchée. His firsthand experience of the terrain, his understanding of tactics and strategy, and his careful use of the extant sources inform every page of the book, making In the Steps of the Black Prince a must for an historian of the Hundred Years War. --De Re Militari

Another first-rate Boydell title. (...) I can think of few accounts of medieval warfare which read as well as this one. LONE WARRIOR Hoskins' book is the product of a fascinating exercise and the author's approach can be of considerable value when dealing with differences between sources. THE MEDIEVAL REVIEW Aided by fine maps this is a solid reconstruction of medieval warfare. CONNEXION --Various
