The Battle of Crécy, between the English and French during the Hundred Years’ War, occurred on this date in 1346.  It was one of the first major battles that pitted the longbowmen of the English against the Genoese crossbowmen—with the longbowmen emerging the decisive victor (even against staggeringly superior numbers).  So next time you’re preparing for battle against, you know, Genoa….well, you know what to do.  [And let’s take a moment to regard that highly peculiar Dutch stamp.  Ok, it was issued in 1959, but….honestly?]
