Sieges were far more numerous than pitched battles. Castles controlled the countryside around them and provided bases from which squadrons of knights could ride out to attack an enemy. Though battles tend to be remembered they were a dangerous gamble. Henry V won the French crown not by the famous but rather empty victory of Agincourt, but by the series of sieges which followed." Interior - tiny letter written in ink on title page, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - minor rubbing.
