From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hundred Years' War broke out in 1337. There was a lull after the Truce of Espléchin was signed in 1340. The English determined early in 1345 to renew the war and full-scale fighting broke out in south-west and northern France. The French were repeatedly defeated, with the loss or devastation of much territory and the capture by the English of the port of Calais. Part of this period was so militarily successful for the English king that it was known as his annus mirabilis or year of marvels. Most fighting ceased in September 1347 when the Truce of Calais was signed.
