Agincourt : a novel

One of England's most dramatic victories, the battle of Agincourt is more than history; it is legend. Immortalized by Shakespeare in Henry V, the against-all-odds fight pitted the undermanned and overwhelmed English against their tireless French adversaries. Following the whole campaign of 1415, from the disasters at the siege of Harfleur to the horrors of the field at Agincourt, this exhilarating epic of survival and slaughter is at once a brilliant work of history and a triumph of imagination, as the author brings to life the inspiring story of the common men who were responsible for the uncommon victory.

  • "The legendary battle of Agincourt, fought on October 25th 1415, on St Crispin's Day, is one of the best known battles in English history, in part through the brilliant depiction of it in Shakespeare's Henry V, in part because it was a brilliant and unexpected English victory.
