>On the day of the battle, the English commander, John Talbot, 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, believing that the enemy was retreating, led his army in an attack on a fortified French encampment without waiting for reinforcements. Talbot then refused to withdraw even after realizing the strength of the French position, causing his men to suffer severe casualties from the French artillery. Castillon was a major European battle won through the extensive use of field artillery.
>The battle led to the English losing almost all their holdings in France, especially Gascony (Aquitaine), an English possession for the previous three centuries. The balance of power in Europe shifted, and political instability ensued in England.

When talking about medieval wars between the french and the english it's always worth noting that England had like 1/10th of the population of france.
It was like Estonia invading Poland. Insane at how much trouble they caused.
>England had like 1/10th of the population of france.
No, more like 1/5th. Also that's not taking into account that the Hundred Years Wars was not solely a France vs England war but also a succession war opposing the French crown, the Burgundian duchy and Armagnac league.

You're wide of the mark - he's too highly strung
