From his narrative, it becomes clear that there were three main reasons for the decline of English power in France.

Professor of Health and Law John Coggon critiqued Sumption's philosophical and legal arguments against COVID-19 restrictions in the Journal of Medical Ethics; he also contrasted Sumption's libertarian arguments against such restrictions with arguments he himself had made against the right to die when giving his judgment in R (Nicklinson) v Ministry of Justice, when he argued that the moral principle of sanctity of life should be protected in law. Triumph and Illusion is the final volume of Jonathan Sumption’s epic history of the Hundred Years War.
