    Battle of Blore Heath???? Or Battle of Montlhery???

    I take the Archer's stake as a hint, which they were widely used by the Englishmen....

    Trax got it right...it's Nicopolis.

    It's a Western impression of the battle...the stakes were a clue though as the Ottomans used them in the battle.

    Your turn Trax...
