The source I've been using doesn't seem to entirly agree with what has previously been written here. It puts the number of civilian causalties at Quimper at 1400, That is not really a problem since such numbers are just estimates anyway, put it also portrays that affair as Charles of Blois' own initiative with his own men and with Philip VI anxious to not provocate the English because of the ongoing peace conference. I'm not sure how to reconcile the two accounts, so at the moment, the two sections disagree with each other. Fornadan(t) 02:37, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
The article says "It now fell upon... Joanna of Flanders to lead the Montfortist cause. ...she set up headquarters at Hennebont... but was driven into Brest and besieged, the siege being broken by the arrival of an English army... at the naval battle of Brest. In Paris it was feared that Edward III would land at Calais once the truce ran out."
The last sentence suggests the naval battle occurred before the truce ended. How is it possible? Top.Squark (talk) 17:17, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
