The Battle of Ashingdon was fought on 18 October 1016, at Assandun. There is dispute over whether Assandun may actually be today's Ashdon, or the long supposed Ashingdon, in southeast Essex, England. It was a victory for the Danes, led by Canute the Great, who triumphed over the English army led by King Edmund II ('Ironside'). The battle was the conclusion to the Danish reconquest of England.

Suppose if you count their wives abnd kids as "innocent civilians" your right - but tell me of a war, tell me of a time, when "innocents" havn't been killed. :? If war was so neat and tidy, we may grow to like it; it's grotesque and wastefull, but some regularly resort to it; mainly cheered on by those who arn't going. :shock:
