      Battle of Leignitz 1241?

      This was a sideshow...it was the supporting attack to fix the Germans and Poles in place while the Mongols went after the real prize -- the Danube plains of Hungary!

        The start of the re emergance of infantry as dominant arm in the west - Stirling bridge and Golden Spurs seem to be have been neglected.

          They couldn't get them all.
          Thanks for the heads up.

            A very tough decision, especially with others being put forward with such good arguments.

            For my penny I am saying that these battles should be considered....

            Battle of Stamford Bridge - 1066

            Battle of Kosovo - 1399

            Stamford Bridge as another poster has said could be attached to Hastings as a campaign but I am unsure of whether that is in the rules. Certainly it was a major factor in Harolds defeat to William.

            Kosovo was an important battle as it was the precursor to hundreds of years of Ottoman rule and lead to the major wars between the Hapsburgs, Hungary and the Ottoman Empire. If the Ottomans had failed here, would there have been a Siege of Vienna?

                Both excellent choices.

                I also recommend (in the order I thought of them):

                Battle of Mohi: The defeat of the Mongols in 1241 AD, saving Europe from the Wrath of the Khan.

                Battle of Sigiburg: Charlemagne returns to Saxony in 775AD, letting them know that Germany will be united -- it's only a matter of time.

                -and-

                Odoacer's Invasion of Italy: The end of Rome in the West.
