Warfare in October


Agincourt ,  1415  Hundred Years War


King Henry V of England was marching from Harfleur to Calais when he utterly destroyed a much larger French force under Charles 14 Afabet  1988 D’Albret, Marshal of France, at Agincourt.

While more than 5,000 knights of the French  nobility were slaughtered by the unexpected power of the English longbow, Henry’s campaign was seemingly exhausted and he soon returned to England (25 October 1415).
