August 1424. After an hour of fierce struggle, twelve thousand combatants lie on the plain a few hundred meters from the small Norman city. The Lombardo-Hispano-Ecosso-French army, commanded by Archibald de Douglas, a very recent Duke of Touraine in the service of Charles VII, has just suffered a terrible setback against the English host of the Duke of Bedford, regent of France for the King Henry VI. This book traces the three years during which several thousand men of arms came from Scotland to achieve the surprising victory of Baugé and, at Cravant and Verneuil, to suffer two terrible defeats. Verneuil, sometimes nicknamed the second Azincourt, is one of the bloodiest battles of the Hundred Years' War; it marks the end of the massive involvement of Scots on the continent in this conflict.
