Description-
  • “The greatest writer of historical adventures today” (Washington Post) tackles his most thrilling subject yet–the heroic tale of Agincourt.

    One of England’s most dramatic victories, the battle of Agincourt is more than history; it is legend. Immortalized by Shakespeare in Henry V, the against-all-odds fight pitted the undermanned and overwhelmed English against their tireless French adversaries. Following the whole campaign of 1415, from the disasters at the siege of Harfleur to the horrors of the field at Agincourt, this exhilarating epic of survival and slaughter is at once a brilliant work of history and a triumph of imagination, as Bernard Cornwell brings to life the inspiring story of the common men who were responsible for the uncommon victory.


    From the Compact Disc edition.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine This little study of Henry V's routing of the French army in Normandy in 1415 will be welcomed by medievalists, weaponry buffs, and lovers of Shakespeare's histories. The background of the battle is rich, and the moment itself is vivid. (As battles go, this one was remarkably short, compared to the long shadow it casts in national memory.) David Case reads laconically but accurately, though it is possible to doubt some of his French, and even his Latin, pronunciation. The real drawback--and it is one--is that it is difficult to appreciate the narrative without referring to maps. For those who can manage it, an atlas at the elbow will increase pleasure. B.G.
