Patay is considered by many historians to be the English version of France's Azincourt. Joan's forces were approximately 8000 knights and foot soldiers to 3000 Englishmen. The English lost just less than half their number, 1200 approx. to the French 5! 2 of the 3 English commanders, Talbot and Scales were captured. Sir John Talbot being offended at being captured by a mere squire, knighted the man on the spot, and then allowed himself to be carried away.
Joan was in the rear of the troops during the battle, and as she rode through she was taken aback by the sight of so many Christians, French and English killed or wounded on the battle field. It is reported that she dsmounted and held an English knight in her arms until he died. More on the battle of patay may be found at the Xenophone Group including photos of the battle field today.
