THE EPIC BATTLE

battle_of_bosworth_by_philip_james_de_loutherbourg

Every war ends with one major battle that decides the fate of a nation. In my fantasy series, there will be one colossal battle that will seal the future of the kingdom. It will pit hundreds of thousands of warriors against one another as the soil becomes drenched in blood and mountains of corpses form. I will be drawing inspiration from three major medieval battles I learned about in documentaries: The Battle of Hastings, The Battle of Bosworth Field, and The Battle of Pilleth. In the aftermath of the Battle of Hastings, William the Conqueror built an abbey on the sight of the battle so that it would be immortalized. In my fantasy series, I am thinking of the victor taking a similar approach in his victory.
