The Battle of Pleshey Castle, August 27, 1462

A Small Army Commanded by the Duke of Somerset (@CraigM) with forces contributed by the Earl of Kent (@Cuthbert) stormed the Pleshey Castle which contained the retinue and troops commanded by the Earl of Essex, Marshal of England, Henry Bourchier (@Ironsight) .

Somerset’s Command attacks with 550 men under Somerset (Somerset’s Retinue - 320, the Duke of Lancaster’s Retinue-80, and the Earl of Kent’s Retinue -150).

The Earl of Essex defends with 250 men under his command (His Retinue -150 men, Castle Garrison 100 men)

The Odds are 2-1.
