Diplomatic map in the begining
King Henry VII
Henry VII declares war agains Scotland in July 1494. Scotland doesn't waste any time and attacks with all their might taking the battle to the English ground.
English soldiers were not ready for them and suffered great losses and retreated to south. Scotland has won it's first battle. King Henry was furious and ordered all men to arms and attack immediately.
This time England was ready for battle and with two armies it attacks agains Scotland. But Scotland was prepared for them with three armies and their moral was high unlike English soldiers who lost their first battle so easily. Even though England out numbered their enemy they still were unabel to win because their moral was too low so they lost yet again.
And The Marches falls to the enemys hands..... Scotland doesn't stop there and attacks to Lancashire.
It looks like England is gonna lose again. But this time they are not gonna lose they defeat the enemy and siege The Marches.
Scotland realizes that it can't win the war so easily and attacks Irland with small army in order to get English army out of Scotland.
England doesn't slow down and trains small militia army in Irland to keep their visitors busy. In Scotland English troops meet little to no resistance and soon they are ready to siege Higlands.
Scotland tried desperately get English army out of their lands and attacks Calais.
Their army was too small and unorganized to win. English army in Calais didn't spare anyone. At the meantime England managed to get militia big enough to drive Scoland's army out of Irland.
Unfortunatly all of the milita troops were Irish and since no one has ever met sober Irish they lost the first battle.(no offense intended) At the mean time English troops sieged Highlands and Irish militia managed to drive Scotland's army out of Irland war was over.
King Henry was happy British Isles belonged to England now. But he was still concerned about France because English foothold in France was impaired.
