War, government and power in late medieval France by C. T Allmand( )

18 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume portray the public life of late medieval France as that country established its position as a leader of western European society in the early modern world. A central theme is the contribution made by contemporary writers, chroniclers and commentators, such as Jean Froissart, William Worcester and Philippe de Commynes, to our understanding of the past. Who were they? What picture of their times did they present? Were their works intended to influence their contemporaries and what success did they enjoy? Other contributions deal with the exercise of political power, the relationship between the court and those in authority in far-flung reaches of the kingdom, and the role and status of the death penalty as deterrent, punishment and means of achieving justice
The hundred years war : England and France at war, c. 1300-c. 1450 by C. T Allmand( Book )

37 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 1,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a comparative study of how the societies of late-medieval England and France reacted to the long period of conflict between them commonly known as the Hundred Years War. Beginning with an analysis of contemporary views regarding the war. Two chapters follow which describe the military aim of the protagonists, military and naval organisation, recruitment, and the raising of taxes. The remainder of the book describes and analyses some of the main social and economic effects of war upon society, the growth of a sense of national consciousness in time of conflict, and the social criticism which came from those who reacted to changes and development brought about by war. Although intended primarily as a textbook for students, Dr Allmand's study is much more than that. It makes an important general contribution to the history of war in medieval times, and opens up new and original perspectives on a familiar topic
Society at war; the experience of England and France during the Hundred Years War by C. T Allmand( Book )

25 editions published between 1973 and 1998 in English and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The impact of war on England and France in the late middle ages, and the reaction to the conflict between them, is fully explored through the evidence and commentary presented here." "The Hundred Years War forms the framework for the chosen documents, all from the fourteenth and fifteenth century. Extracts illuminate how men thought about war and how they faced up to it in practice, the problems of manpower, and the effects of the military needs of the day on society. The importance of economic motives in going to war is considered, together with the changing methods used in fighting the war and the role of the noncombatant who contributed financially, materially and morally towards his country's war effort. Finally, the attempts at peace-making are illustrated, showing how war did not end suddenly, since its effects - social, economic and political - were felt for many years after it was officially over."--BOOK JACKET

The De re militari of Vegetius : the reception, transmission and legacy of a Roman text in the Middle Ages by C. T Allmand( Book )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vegetius' late Roman text became a well known and highly respected 'classic' in the Middle Ages, transformed by its readers into the authority on the waging of war. Christopher Allmand analyses the medieval afterlife of the De re militari, tracing the growing interest in the text from the Carolingian world to the late Middle Ages, suggesting how the written word may have influenced the development of military practice in that period. While emphasising that success depended on a commander's ability to outwit the enemy with a carefully selected, well trained and disciplined army, the De re militari inspired other unexpected developments, such as that of the 'national' army, and helped create a context in which the role of the soldier assumed greater social and political importance. Allmand explores the significance of the text and the changes it brought for those who accepted the implications of its central messages"--

These duels, ambushes, and firefights, he writes, were more than personal vendettas: They were part of a"Western Civil War of Incorporation," pitting gunmen--usually Republicans and Unionists, who sided with the expanding banks, railroads, and businesses--against cowboys and independent farmers, who were often Democrats sympathizing with the Confederacy. Brown examines the gunfight near the O.K. Corral in this light, showing how it was a climax of tensions between Tombstone's Republican businessmen (represented by Wyatt Earp) and the county's cowboys (led by the Clantons and McLaurys). He also looks at such lesser-known battles as the Mussel Slough war, in which resisting farmers, imbuedwith the no-retreat ethic, fought for their independent lifestyle against encroaching rail barons. This Civil War of Incorporation fed the violence of the West and reinforced the legal doctrine of "no duty to retreat." The frontier days are long past, but Brown shows how the ethic of no retreat continues to shape everything from our entertainment to our foreign policy (including President Bush's "line drawn in the sand") to our politics to cases like that of Bernhard Goetz. Though challenged as never beforeby the values of peace and social activism, it remains a central theme in American thought and character
