Sample text

The town was sacked by the Great Chevauchee for seven days, though the attackers were unable to take the strongly defended Church of Saint-Pierre. This fine 13th-century edifice with 15th- and 16th-century additions was, however, damaged during a German air raid in 1940. (Author's photograph) 44 Nevertheless the price a large part of France would pay for this cautious, if ultimately successful, strategy would be high. Modern research has shown that a large medieval army was capable of devastating and pillaging a swathe of territory 25km from its line of march, thus creating a zone of destruction 50km wide.

147-48 38 The Raid After ignoring the small castle of Montoire (now Nielles-les-Ardres) where a knight of Picardy named Houdecourte guarded the frontier, discipline was strictly maintained as it was unclear how the French would react. Nevertheless the invaders almost immediately set about spreading havoc as far as they could. The destruction of the Abbey of Licques may have been carried out during the army's first-night stop in the vicinity, or it may have been done by a detached unit. According to Froissart: 'They advanced at the rate of about three leagues a day, and at night quartered together, keeping a strict and strong watch to prevent surprise', one league being approximately the same as 5km.

Roye, Essigni, Vendeuil and Remigny were burned to the ground. The destruction was so thorough that for several years the French King's exchequer abandoned any hope of extracting the usual tax revenues from these towns. In fact a document dated 4 January 1374 recorded that Charles V ordered their taxes be remitted. 23 Now that John of Gaunt seemed more concerned with devastating the Vermandois than with threatening Paris, the Duke of Burgundy moved ahead of the Great Chevauchee's anticipated line of march and established a new HQ at Soissons.
