Phillip VI
While England was preparing to invade France, Phillip VI of France pushed David II of Scotland to preempt by attacking England from the north. Unfortunately, David II was defeated in October 1346 at Neville’s Cross and Edward III of England landed in Normandy. Edward’s troops launched systematic raids on French territories and eventually they met the main body of French troops in Crecy. Philip ordered a series of predictable and unimaginative attacks on English formations, which were stopped cold by hail of arrows rained down by the English longbowmen. Phillip VI survived the battle but lost more than 4000 men.
