ABSTRACT
The article details the events that led to the Battle of Morlaix in France on September 30, 1342. Morlaix has been eclipsed by the more famous English victory at Crécy on August 26, 1346. For the first time in a land battle, a large army of traditional French knights and men-at-arms caught a much smaller English force in the open only to get its first taste of the hardened professionalism, deadly archery and tactical flexibility that the English soldier had acquired from years of campaigning against the Scots. INSET: The Forgotten Victor of Morlaix.
