At the end of my first spin-off fantasy book, there will be a brutal battle that takes place in a swamp. It will pit 1,200 infantry and archers against 6,000 cavalry as they try to overpower one another in a bottleneck. Like the Scots and the Welsh in medieval times, one army will consist of guerrilla fighters who use the terrain to their advantage. At one point, the swamp will be on fire! It is going to be a bloody battle that will serve as a turning point in the war one way or another. I will be basing some of the tactics of this battle from the Battle of Loudon Hill and the Battle of Agincourt. Both of these battles involved a small army that was outnumbered five to one and found ways to negate their enemies’ numerical superiority and defy the odds.
