    Battle of Poitiers
    Battle of Poitiers
    At the Battle of Poitiers, the isolated and outnumbered army of the Prince of Wales defeated King John II. As at Crécy, the Anglo-Gascon force made good, defensive use of the field by occupying high ground that was broken to their front and offered security to the flanks and rear. Unlike Crécy, John was able to bring up his army in good order. As attrition began to tell for the French, Wales turned their flank with a desperate and wholly unexpected cavalry charge. John and his son Philip were captured on the field.
