Dubious

The aftermath section states this battle was "was relatively minor in military terms". What is the justification for this? Both armies were substantial for the time, and three of the Lancastrian leaders were killed in the fighting; it is also a (relatively rare) example of urban warfare in the medieval period. Anybody have any ideas? Xyl 54 (talk) 15:48, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

The scale of the fighting, however, was not that great, in that the action was over relatively quickly and many of those killed were caught in what was, essentially, a rout after the defences had been outflanked. Guthrum (talk) 23:24, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
