Road to Crecy 1346 – Battle of Abbeville

Jan 12th, 2009 | By | Category: AD 1346 Crecy

That the English were trounced at Abbeville and chased from the field, therefore indicates they used the longbow from horseback and lost all advantage from the weapon. It could also be that the town had artillery in use, that was not recorded in chronicles. The combined effects, of poor weapon deployment on horses being made skittery by artillery, could explain their losing this battle.
