Al Margery comments upon the battle of Agincourt

"Ms. Curry has worked out from enrollment and pay records that there
were at least 8,000 men in Henry's army, compared with 12,000 on the
French side."

I don't think the 8,000 has ever been in question, it's that the French
purportedly had 50,000. It's very interesting to see they only had
12,000. This makes sense.
