The seventh and final volume of The Accursed Kings series by Maurice Druon, The King Without a Kingdom, is available for the first time in English. The reign of the Capetian kings has ended and John II, 'The Good', first of the Valois dynasty, has taken the throne. But through the eyes of his Cardinal, Perigord, we see that a monarch, as vain and cruel as he is incompetent, now sits on one of the most powerful thrones in Europe. And so, under his leadership does The Hundred Years War commence, one of the most prolonged and bloody conflicts in history, as England and France tear each other apart. Warring factions plunder the land, famine threatens its people and the Black Death spreads far and wide, as France bleeds around the new king.

I read this series when it was first published beginning in the mid 50s. I highly recommend to those like good history with fictional trappings, tho not quite the level of the Flashman series.
