    The battle of Crécy: Edward the Black Prince (1330-1376, son of Edward III of England) commanding the English army including longbow archers against the strong French troops. From Jean Froissart's Chroniques; Bruges, Belgium; third half of the 14th century. The Battle of Crécy took place on 26 August, 1346, near Crécy, in northern France and was one of the most important battles of the Hundred Years' War. Because of new weapons and tactics used, the battle is seen by many historians as the beginning of the end of chivalry. The battle in which a much smaller English army commanded by Edward III of England and heavily outnumbered by Philip VI of France's force was victorious as a result of superior weaponry and tactics. It was a battle where the effectiveness of the English longbow, used en masse, was proven against armoured knights.
