Hundred Years War

  • June 9: The Battle of Saint-Pol-de-Léon in the War of the Breton Succession ends with an English victory.
  • July 11th: King Edward III. of England crosses the English Channel with a fleet from southern England and lands the next day in Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue , about 25 km from Cherbourg . From here he begins his campaign through Normandy . Edward's army consists mainly of English and Welsh soldiers, some German and Breton mercenaries as well as Norman nobles and their armed men, who with the rule of the French King Philip VI. are dissatisfied. The English army marches south from the landing point, with Edward's goal being to lead a Chevauchée across enemy territory to Caen . His soldiers plunder and pillage the cities of Carentan , Saint-Lô and Torteval on their way , which is intended to destroy French morale and combat strength. With the conquest of Caen, Edward hopes to finally be able to offset his enormous expenses for the campaign and at the same time to break the will to fight of the French crown by the capture and destruction of this important city.
