Battle of Agincourt
25th October 1415
On St Crispin's Day, 25 October 1415, Henry V's small English force routed the French in the most famous clash of the Hundred Years' War. On a battlefield east of the tiny village of Agincourt in northern France, the English king's heavily outnumbered army repelled the massed attacks of the enemy and killed or captured leading members of the French nobility. The encounter changed the course of the war and its impact on English history endures to this day.
