I think that an experienced and equipped warrior (mercenary, for example) had no chance against two or more equal opponents in fight. But what if his opponents were three peasants?
I heard a theory that three peasants could overcome a warrior with a little cooperation:
- First would grab his legs and drop him on the ground.
- Second would grab his weapon hand.
- Third would kill him, while incapacitated by the others.
I'm not sure if it's a plausible theory.
Did a warrior have a fair chance to defeat several opponents (less experienced and badly armed) in combat?
