In the book Good Omens, by Pratchett and Gaiman, there’s a scene where a group of teenagers are playing on a video quiz machine when the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse turn up and the questions start to get more and more… well, apocalyptic.
One of the questions was “How many times since 1066 have England and France been at war?” The answer was supposedly 20.
Now, of course, Pratchett and Gaiman aren’t historians, so I don’t necessarily believe this. It seems quite a large number. Can anyone here identify all the wars between England and France?
(I assume you’re meant to substitute “Britain” for “England” after the Act of Union in 1707).
