Synopsis: A definitive account of the iconic battle, uniquely structured over 24 hours of a single shocking day—a day that changed history
"Jean de Croy had sworn a remarkable pact with 18 of his fellow knights: they would fight as a body and kill the English king, or die in the attempt. And so they did—launching themselves at the English line. Croy and all 18 of these knights were killed in fierce fighting, but not before they had got close enough to the king to strike repeated blows on his battle helmet, one of them severely damaging the crown that was welded to it—so that two of its rubies were smashed off."
In 24 Hours at Agincourt, published to tie in with the 600th anniversary of Agincourt, Michael Jones brings the iconic battle vividly to life, drawing on countless authentic eyewitness accounts to showcase both sides of the conflict in a panoramic tour-de-force.
