about

In this guide, available in digital format for handheld devices only, Peter Hoskins takes the tourist along the routes of the Black Prince's expedition to France in 1355 and 1356. He draws on his on-the-ground experience of walking more than 1,300 miles across France, retracing the routes of the armies in search of a greater understanding of the Black Prince's expedition. He tells the story of theraids from Bordeaux to the Mediterranean and north to the Loire which culminated in the Black Prince's victory at the Battle of Poitiers, and provides detailed information to allow the tourist to follow the routes by car, on foot or by bike. The sixteen tours each have a map, details of sites of historic interest, and GPS co-ordinates, with further practical information to help tourists plan their visit; they cater for motorists, walkers and cyclists alike.

PETER HOSKINS combines his interest in exploration of his adopted country, France, with his research into the Hundred Years War. His book, In the Steps of the Black Prince: The Road to Poitiers, 1355-1356 was published in 2011; this volume forms a companion to it.
