An extraordinary and dramatic depiction of the legendary battle of
Agincourt from the number one historical novelist Azincourt, fought
on October 25th 1415, St Crispin's Day, is one of England's
best-known battles, in part through the brilliant depiction of it
in Shakespeare's Henry V, in part because it was a brilliant and
unexpected English victory and in part because 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 soldiers.
