1336- Philip makes plans, setting the stage for war The early cannons which were used in the Hundred Years' War were slow and small. They had a very limited range and were probably as dangerous to the user as to the opponents. Hand cannons were easy and inexpensive
to mass produce and relatively easy to learn
how to use. They could pierce through armor
easily and were an early example of firearm
usage.
The French crossbow fired slower and had a shorter range than the English longbow, but it required less training than the English longbow. It also had more force than the longbow. It was usually made of ash or yew. To use the bow, all the soldiers needed to do was load the arrow and draw it, then wait for the chance to fire. Once this chance came, they pressed the trigger and the arrow flew. They ended up being trampled and killed by their own knights.
The longbow was used effectively by the English to defend against the
French who outnumbered them by a lot during the battles. The longbow
was a huge bow that could be anywhere from 3 feet to 6 feet tall. Generally
only people who had trained for years could be profficient at it. It was very
hard to draw and was usually made up of durable wood. They won the
battles of Crécy (1346), Poitiers (1356), and Agincourt (1415) with his weapon. Economy English Victories Wind mills Winds Hurricanes Travel Making electrical energy Wind Generators Fun
