HarperCollins Publishers Limited, 2009 - Agincourt, Battle of, Agincourt, France, 1415 - 453 pages
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 the author brings to life the inspiring story of the common men who were responsible for the uncommon victory.

This book was a thrilling ride, with its up and downs, love and lost, death and life. If there was any book i would recommend it would be Bernard Cornwell's Azincourt, the way he wrote about Nicholas Hook, it was as if he followed him around France and Britain writing all that happens at the time.
Amazing book, would read it again and again.
