You're a loser for pointing it out and having him delete the post.

You're a loser for actually listening to someone on the net and deleting it.
Wherever I tread, only chaos & destruction follow.

Well lets make the first counterreply and therefore the first flame war!

The english did lose while defending against the french. i.e. After Joan d' Arc arrived... and sure some small skirmishes before.

Terrain and french stupidity made the english take that victory.

French cavalry charge failed because of the unploughed land which turned into mud by rain and the spikes which english archers carved to protect them from cavalry. cavalry charged through the spikes and because of the mud some spikes fell down but most remained up and pierced the horses resulting in lots of casualties. The french cavalry retreated and trampled their own members on their way back because of panicing horses resulting in an even less organised army.
Footman also managed to get to the english force but after crawling through 200-300yards of mud while being shot by barrages of arrows having the sun shine in their eyes making them disorientated and losing alot of morale they got beaten by the english force, who in comparison had alot more energy to fight.

Casualties from french are estimated at around 10.000 and english casualties  were around 100 according to some sources but most people think it would have been more like 500.



Very very very basic summary, i could also write 3pages by quoting books and sources but that takes to much time and most of you guys know how this battle went anyways because this is one of the most legendary and most spoken off battles in history.

 Agincourt never happened.  It was all made up as part of a propaganda campaign.    Horses didn't arrive in Europe until the late 1800's when they swam there from Africa.  Metal armor was never used in the middle ages, it simply got far too hot in the sun.  Most armor was made from corkboard or reconstituted papyrus (the predecessor of cardboard).  While bows were common in the middle ages, arrows were not invented until 1782 when Silus Arrowoner accidently launched his serving spoon by way of longbow into the leg of an unknown tavern patron.  Previously bows had only been used as musical instruments.  Bar maces and morning stars were a common site in the middle ages, but were only used as hunting weapons as deer in that era were very tame.
