Agincourt: Henry V and the Battle That Made England

Agincourt: Henry V and the Battle That Made England

Waged almost six centuries ago, the Battle of Agincourt still captivates. It is the classic underdog story, and generations have wondered how the English-outmanned by the French six to one-could have succeeded so bravely and brilliantly. Drawing on a wide range of sources, Juliet Barker paints a gripping narrative of the October 1415 clash between the outnumbered English archers and the heavily armored French knights. Populated with chivalrous heroes, dastardly spies, and a ferocious and bold king, AGINCOURT is as earthshaking as its subject-and confirms Juliet Barker's status as both a historian and a storyteller of the first rank.
