>>12616> He wrote two case where he noted that fleeing enemy died in greater number.
I believe most killing is done when one side begins to run away and the other just follow them and mow them down.
I remember two battles, one from reconquista times, and the other from albigensian crusade, where small force of warriors caused incredibly high loses to the enemy. Unfortunately I don't remember what exact battles those were, but the numbers were like 200-800 knights vs tens of thousands soldiers. They made some bold move, in case of albigensian war they charged and killed the commander, and the rest of enemies panicked.
Thanks for the read btw.
