The Prisoners from Agincourt D.10.12.02

1 Dec

An interesting point at Agincourt was that Henry V of England panicked and ordered French prisoners be killed.
This enormously added to the death toll in the battle because many of the knights had surrendered and were waiting to be ransomed.
And then Henry, who panicked, ordered that the prisoners were killed. This gave the English hope that they could win the war.
