    Battle of Crécy
    Battle of Crécy
    At Crécy, Edward III and his long-bowmen earned a signal victory over a numerically superior French force. Edward had the advantage of the high ground; moreover, the ground before him was terraced, a feature that forced the French cavalry to mass on Edward's right where his son was in command. Denied the ability to manuever, the numbers became a liability for the French. "[T]he majority were crushed to death," according to Geoffrey le Baker. The slaughter among the nobility was so great that Philip VI's ability to govern was materially impaired. English influence on the continent experienced a revival.

    Battle of Poitiers
    Battle of Poitiers
    At the Battle of Poitiers, the isolated and outnumbered army of the Prince of Wales defeated King John II. As at Crécy, the Anglo-Gascon force made good, defensive use of the field by occupying high ground that was broken to their front and offered security to the flanks and rear. Unlike Crécy, John was able to bring up his army in good order. As attrition began to tell for the French, Wales turned their flank with a desperate and wholly unexpected cavalry charge. John and his son Philip were captured on the field.
