Castillon was the final engagement of the Hundred Years War. After being driven out of Northern France the previous few years, Henry VI sent a new army to Bordeaux in Southwestern France in attempt to maintain at least some territory in France. In July 1453 the English forces attacked a French force that was besieging the town of Castillon. The attack was repulsed, the English were routed and Shrewsbury was killed. Bordeaux became French territory and the final English survivors sailed for home.
English Leadership: John Talbot, earl of Shrewsbury
