Told from the viewpoint of an English archer, just before and during the battle, Warren Ellis' Crecy is worth the read for anyone who enjoys a good "triumph of the common man" story. Although Ellis does make one or two mistakes (the main one being that archers draw to the ear, not to the mouth), this is more than made up for by the fantastic b&W art of Raulo Caceres, which really sets the tone of the book. It's not all grim, though, there are a fair few good chuckles to be had throughout, mainly the English attitude towards the French (and even the Welsh). It's no for the kiddies as there is a fair bit of bad language in it bit all in all a great read for a band of degenerates such as us.

8 cake slices out of 10
