The Battle of Châlons

This evening, I watched a really interesting television programme about the life of Attila, the notorious leader of the Huns.
The programme included detail of the Battle of Châlons in 451 when Attila’s forces were defeated by a coalition led by the Roman general Flavius Aetius and the Visigothic king Theodoric I.
For many historians, this was one of the most decisive battles of Late Antiquity which determined the history of European civilisation.
