“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.
