While I accept that an examination of those records could show a more even set of odds, I think that the longbows and the mud took the day. (Besides, do these academics even understand what mud is? ;) )

The 'war crimes' accusations by French Historians are absurd. Only in a PC world with the Geneva Convention could you get that kind of a charge, from a country with arguably the second worst military record in history(first being the Italians).

Link provided to some of the funniest commentary on military history I've ever read.

Thanks for the link. If I could fund it, I'd love to follow up on the research and dig into the records myself. :) Of course, I'd probably have to travel to England and Southern England (the part on the other side of the Channel) for first-hand study....

Actually, I think some of this is discussed at the end of Bernard Cornwell's Agincourt. If you haven't read it, you should, and Tessa definitely should. The audiobook version (unabridged) is totally worth the coin, too, and I rarely say that.
