On St Crispin's Day, 25 October 1415, Henry V's English army crushed the French in the most famous battle of the Hundred Years' War. His outnumbered force of men-at-arms and archers repelled the repeated charges of the French mounted men and killed or captured the leading members of the French nobility. The encounter changed the course of the war and made a mark on English and French history that endures to this day. In this compelling new study, medieval historian Michael K. Jones looks critically at the historical evidence and retells in graphic detail the story of this extraordinary campaign. He also provides a fascinating tour of the sites associated with it - Harfleur, Henry V's route across northern France and the Agincourt battlefield itself.

Waged almost six centuries ago, the Battle of Agincourt still captivates. It is the classic underdog story, and generations have wondered how the English--outmanned by the French six to one--could have succeeded so bravely and brilliantly. Drawing on a wide range of sources, Juliet Barker paints a gripping narrative of the October 1415 clash between the outnumbered English archers and the heavily armored French knights. Populated with chivalrous heroes, dastardly spies, and a ferocious and bold king, AGINCOURT is as earthshaking as its subject--and confirms Juliet Barker's status as both a historian and a storyteller of the first rank.

With 36 pages of additional articles, references, and bibliographies of recommended reading. Agincourt is the quintessential English battle. Outnumbered English forces meet the French on the battlefield, and through courage, tenacity, (and a wicked Welsh weapon called a longbow), they win the day. While Henry V was triumphant, and was immortalized by Shakespeare for his victory, his gains were later squandered by his son, Henry VI, so ultimately not much was accomplished. In this Henty book, Guy Aylmer is an English squire and the son of a knight. He travels to Villeroy, in France, where his lord has a castle, but is swept up in it's defense when it is attacked by Orleanist forces. He winds-up as a prisoner in Paris where he and his charges are assaulted by the White Hoods-the butchers of Paris. After several adventures and escapes he later returns to France with King Henry V and fights in the Battle of Agincourt.

As night fell in Picardy on Thursday 24 October 1415, Henry V and his English troops, worn down by their long march after the taking of Harfleur and diminished by the dysentery they had suffered there, can little have dreamt that the battle of the next day would provide them with one of the most complete victories ever won. Anne Curry's startling history recreates the campaign and battle from the perspectives of the English and the French. Only now, through an in-depth investigation of the contemporary narrative sources as well as the administrative records, and through a new look at the terrain where the battle was fought, can we come to firmer conclusions on what exactly happened, and why. This book, based on years of painstaking research and reflection, makes clear the genius of Henry V as a military leader, and the strengths and capabilities of the English army which he commanded. There can be no doubt of the desire of the French to resist him and to protect their homeland from his invasion. The French fought bravely and to the death. So what went wrong for the French? This question, and many more, are answered in this lively new history.

Cuando Enrique V y su ‘banda de hermanos' venció al poder de la caballería francesa un día lluvioso de octubre en 1415, éste fue un momento decisivo en la historia de Inglaterra. La batalla de Agincourt se convirtió en un símbolo de la identidad de este pueblo y durante seis siglos se ha celebrado como el triunfo del más débil frente a una adversidad aparentemente insuperable. ¿Pero, qué hay de verdad detrás de la batalla sobre la que se han construido tantas leyendas? En este estudio exhaustivo y riguroso de los hechos, Juliet Barker recurre a múltiples fuentes, así como a su insuperable talento narrativo, para ofrecernos un relato fascinante de la batalla y un auténtico fresco del momento histórico en el que ésta tuvo lugar esta brutal lucha por el poder. Un rey enloquecido, duques asesinos, obispos conspiradores, héroes caballerosos, cirujanos, heraldos, espías y piratas: todos ellos forman parte de la historia de Agincourt. "Un logro irrepetible, un retrato magnífico...una lectura deliciosa." The Times "Extraordinariamente comprensivo y absolutamente cautivador." Observer

The Face of Battle is military history from the battlefield: an imperishable account of the direct experience of individuals at 'the point of maximum danger'. It examines the physical conditions of fighting, the particular emotions and behaviour generated by battle, as well as the motives that impel soldiers to stand and fight rather than run away. In this stunningly vivid reassessment of three battles, John Keegan conveys their reality for the participants, whether facing the arrow cloud of Agincourt, the levelled muskets of Waterloo or the steel rain of the Somme.

About the middle of the year 1414, Henry the Fifth, influenced by the persuasions of Chicheley, Archbishop of Canterbury, by the dying injunction of his royal father not to allow the kingdom to remain long at peace, or, more probably, by those feelings of ambition which were no less natural to his youth and personal character, than consonant with the manners of the times in which he lived, resolved to assert that claim to the crown of France, which his great-grandfather, Edward the Third, urged with such confidence and success...
