|Good questions Pam. Wish I had an answer, but this thread was a stark reminder how litle I know about the batle. That seems to be a consensus. So if I may add a few more questions to yours - why do so few people study this particular battle? Is it that sieges are just less "romantic" or "exciting" then straight-out batles? Or that many think it was too late in the war to change anything? Or maybe the strategic importance isn't well known or understood? Curious to hear opinions.
