  • "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. It was the first battle won by the use of the longbow - a weapon developed by the English which enabled them to dominate the European battlefields for the rest of the century. Bernard Cornwell's Azincourt is a vivid, breathtaking and meticulously well researched account of this momentous battle and its aftermath. From the varying viewpoints of nobles, peasants, archers, and horsemen, Azincourt skilfully brings to life the hours of relentless fighting, the desperation of an army crippled by disease and the exceptional bravery of the English..."

  • "Nicholas Hook a survécu au terrible siège de Soissons et a sauvé la vie de la belle Mélisande. Ensemble, l'archer anglais et la jeune Française tentent de trouver refuge en Normandie. C'est sans compter le roi Henri V, prêt à tout pour conquérir le trône de France, et le père de Mélisande, qui veut retenir sa fille. Le sort des deux jeunes gens se jouera à Azincourt lors d'une bataille épique.--[Memento]."
  • "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."

  • "After the Siege of Soissons, Nicholas Hook, and English archer and outlaw, is enrolled in the archer company of the doughty Sir John Cornwaille, a leader of Henry V's army. Sickness and the unexpected French defiance at Harfleur reduce the once surperb army to near-shambolic condition. Henry stubbornly refuses to accept defeat and, in appealling weather, leads his shrunken force to what appears to be inevitable disaster - the Battle at Azincourt."
  • "Young Nicholas Hook is dogged by a cursed past, haunted by what he has failed to do and banished for what he has done. A wanted man in England, he is driven to fight as a mercenary archer in France, where he finds two things he can love: his instincts as a fighting man, and a girl in trouble. Together they survive the notorious massacre at Soissons, an event that shocks all Christendom. With no options left, Hook heads home to England, where his capture means certain death. Instead he is discovered by the young King of England Henry V himself, and by royal command he takes up the longbow again and dons the cross of Saint George. Hook returns to France as part of the superb army Henry leads in his quest to claim the French crown. One of the most dramatic victories in British history, the battle of Agincourt, pitted undermanned and overwhelmed English forces against a French army determined to keep their crown out of Henry?s hands. Here Bernard Cornwell resurrects the legend of the battle and the?band of brothers? who fought it on October 25, 1415. An epic of redemption, Agincourt follows a commoner, a king, and a nation?s entire army on an improbable mission to test the will of God and reclaim what is rightfully theirs."
