W 16

16.  Charny asks:   Two captains are in the field to fight and there is a great number of men at arms on either side.  And so one of the captains and his people are defeated.  And the other captain who has overcome him has  killed his people, taken a great number of the defeated and gained horses and plenty of other goods.   And when the evening comes none consider this to be a rencontre, besoigne or bataille. How can this be and what should it be called?
