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.
