Miniature Wargames


29TH MARCH 1461


Possibly the bloodiest battle ever fought on English soil the huge armies, estimated at between 50,000 – 65,000 confronted each other in a snowstorm in a field between Towton and Saxton. After a long day of fighting the Lancastria­n line finally crumbled and were cut down as they fled or surrendere­d (even knights). It was a decisive victory for the Yorkists with the Lancastria­ns death toll said to number 28,000. It would be another 25 years before the political struggle and fighting would finally end.
