According to the Wiki article Warwicks leg injury from Ferrybridge prevented him from participating in the main battle.

Yet other sources suggest he was part of the pursuing party in the days after the battle.

Any comments?

If he was not present for Towton then who would have lead his battle?

Thanks.

I suspect by 'not participating' that it means he may have been present but did not actually fight in person. The risk of stumbling in combat would make fighting in person, while carrying a leg wound, a desperate act.

I think Billy hit the nail on the head.
Warwick would certainly have been present, but due to his leg injury he was more likely giving encouragement and inspiring his men.

Thanks Mates!

I would suggest that while he, personally, may have fought his forces would certainly have taken part in the battle and the pursuit.

So for 'Warwick' the man we should understand that maybe a trusted household knight led the troops.
