Does your library have access to 'The Hundred Years War: A Wider Focus (History of Warfare, Vol. 25) (History of Warfare (Brill)) '?  It is described as "This volume, the first of a two-volume set, is the work of fourteen European and American scholars and focuses on the wider aspects of the Hundred Years. These essays range far afield from the traditional heartlands of Hundred Years War studies to investigate the influence of the conflict on Italy, the Low Countries, and Spain and on such topics as urban history, and the actualities of weapon use on the battlefield. A number of the essays in this collection seek to re-examine old but thorny questions long associated with the conflict, including the real immediate impact of gunpowder technology on siege warfare during the fourteenth century and the "purposeful" strategy of Henry V in staging and bringing about the battle of Agincourt in 1415. With contributions by L.J. Andrew Villalon, Maria Teresa Ferrer i Mallol, Donald J. Kagay, Clara Estow, William P. Caferro, Sergio Boffa, Peter Michael Konieczny, Paul Solon, Manuel Sanchez Martinez, James E. Gilbert, Jane Marie Pinzino, Clifford J. Rogers, Kelly DeVries, and John Clement. Winner of the 2014 Verbruggen Prize of De Re Militari (the Society for the Study of Medieval Military History) given annually for the best book on medieval military history'.

You won't want to buy it of course, it is bizarrely expensive, but a college library might make it available or get a copy from another.

Look for "the 100 year war" by  Bil O'reilly......if he wrote one about a war it is sure to have some "real truth" in it.

I would start with Amazon, then the individual titles, for sources and compare prices and availability.  Another good source is a University library and then the University bookstore.  And some universities have different selections, so it is worth checking a few.

Personally, I plan to go shopping for non-US-written history books to get alternate views.  I'm sure Great Britain looks at the American Revolution as a minor part of their "world war" with the French and I would like to read their view of it.  Same with Germany from consolidation thru WWII.  And I would like to read (in English of course) Vietnam's view of their history from 1900 to present.  Stuff like that.
