(1320-1380) known as the Eagle of Brittany was one of the most successful French generals of the Hundred Years’ War. He was well known for his strategy of wearing down his opponents by harassing them through skirmishes to cause attrition, disrupting supply and thus affecting morale, the so called Fabian strategy. Nevertheless he also took part in six pitched battles and won the four in which he held command.
