This book is a study of Paris during the period in the fifteenth century when it fell under English rule. Paris was the headquarters of the Lancastrian government in northern France, established by the victories of Henry V. This history thus forms a key chapter in the story of the rule of Henry VI on both sides of the Channel. Thompson examines the advantages that, for a time at least, occupation seemed to offer the indigenous population, and shows how the English were able to retain secure control. He then provides a political and administrative history, and offers a fascinating exploration of Parisian society at a unique period of the city's history.
