July 17, 1453 marks a decisive turning point in the History of France. In front of the stronghold of Castillon, supported by the cavalry of Peter II, Duke of Brittany, the troops of Charles VII commanded by Jean de Bueil and the Bureau brothers confront one last time the Anglo-Gascon forces led by John Talbot, an experienced but aging captain. This final battle, which closed the Hundred Years' War, saw the incontestable victory of the cavalry and artillery over the hereditary enemy, thus putting a definitive end to the supremacy of the English archery. In light of unpublished archives and a careful investigation of the terrain where the fighting took place, this work offers a new perspective on the Battle of Castillon. With supporting evidence, the author refutes point by point the version established by modern historians and taken up for more than a century without any notable update.
