137 The Battle of Shrewsbury

The battle of Shrewsbury of 1403 is one of those battles that deserves to be more remembered  than it is – along with Lincoln in 1217 for example. The issue at Shrewsbury was who would rule England – Henry IVth or the Mortimers and Percies.

  1. Excellent recounting of the battle…I was fully engaged with this one.
    Also, Inspector Clouseau, as the French chronicler, was an outstanding get. Do you two have the same agent or something?
