What battle and military invention changed the course of the Hundred Year's War?
On October 25, 1415 Henry V dealt staggering blow to the French at the Battle of Agincourt, ultimately changing the course of the war in England's favour. Though greatly outnumbered Henry V's choice of terrain and clever placement of his longbowman, allowed him to turn the French numbers against them. Forced to narrow their front rank of mounted knights, who up to this point could easily overwhelm a frontline of archers, were forced into a bottleneck limiting their ability to charge effectively at the English archers and the newly introduced longbow. The first time the English longbow was used on a European battlefield was at the Battle of Sluys in 1340. With an unprecedented range of 250 yards, the longbow was essential to English victories at Poitiers and Crecy. The longbow was more effective at the Battle of Agincourt due to the innovative "shield" the English archers created for themselves. English archers placed sharpened stakes in front of the firing line to prevent French horses from charging forward and trampling them. This battle tactic prevented the French calvary from effectively using their weapons and resulted in a major victory for the English.
