Wiktionary Daily Article Lancaster's Chevauchée Of 1346 12th September 2019

Post by Pete »

Lancaster's chevauchée of 1346 was a large-scale mounted raid directed
by Henry, Earl of Lancaster, in south western France during the Hundred
Years' War. The main English army had defeated the larger French army at
the Battle of Crécy in August, and French defences in the south west
were left weak and disorganised. Lancaster took advantage by leading a
raid between 12 September and 31 October 1346 while sending other forces
into Quercy and the Bazadais. All three offensives were successful, with
Lancaster's chevauchée, of approximately 2,000 English and Gascon
soldiers, meeting no effective resistance from the French, penetrating
160 miles (260 kilometres) north and storming the rich city of Poitiers.
His force then razed and looted large areas of Saintonge, Aunis and
Poitou, capturing numerous towns, castles and smaller fortified places
as they went. The offensives completely disrupted the French defences
and shifted the focus of the fighting.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
