Azincourt by Bernard Cornwell

Azincourt
by Bernard Cornwell
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.
