Summary
One of the most dynamic victories in British history, the battle of Agincourt - immortilized by Shakespeare in Henry V - pitted undermanned and overwhelmed English forces against a French army determined to keep their crown out of English 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 reclaim what is rightfully theirs. From the disasters at the siege of Harfleur to the horrors of the field of Agincourt, this exhilarating story of survival and slaughter is at once a brilliant work of history and a triumph of imagination - Bernard Cornwell at his best
Summary
A tale inspired by the legendary battle of Agincourt finds the soldiers of Henry V rallying against disease, hunger, and formidable weather around longbowman Nicholas Hook, who in spite of his outlaw status fights for his country and the woman he loves
