It would be very interesting to hear what you guys think of the videos and in particular Mr Loades ideas about combat.

Mike Loads on Verneuil and Plate Armour
Here's a few vids of Mike Loades from Channel 4's Weapons that Made Britain series televised about six years ago. In these he discusses the relative merits of merits of plate armour for both man and beast and the effect plate horse housing on on the English during the initial stages of the Battle of Verneuil. Love him or loath him, he's got a paassion for the period and has some interesting takes on the battle (I'm firmly in the 'love him' camp).
