Henry V’s English army triumphed over the French at Agincourt in northern France on 25 October 1415 in one of the defining battles of the Hundred Years War. Six hundred years later this famous event still excites passionate interest and provokes controversy, yet there are no up-to-date guides to the 1415 campaign, the battle itself and the aftermath. That is why the publication of this practical and authoritative guidebook by Peter Hoskins and Anne Curry is so timely.

As well as writing a graphic narrative of the entire campaign, based on the most recent scholarship and research, they take the motorist, cyclist and walker along the route of Henry’s army. The itinerary is divided into five tours which culminate in a vivid reconstruction of the Agincourt battle and a detailed guide to the battlefield. Important buildings and sites along the way are described, there are sketch maps showing the route of the English army, and town plans overlaid with details of the medieval defenses and monuments.

The book is a mine of fascinating historical information. It will be an essential traveling companion for readers who are interested in medieval history and warfare, the Hundred Years War and the extraordinary career of Henry V.

About the Author:

Peter Hoskins is a former RAF pilot who writes, lectures and gives battlefield tours related to the Hundred Years War. He contributed to the recent BBC4 TV series on the Hundred Years War and is a member of the International Guild of Battlefield Guides. His recent book In the Steps of the Black Prince: The Road to Poitiers, 1355-1356 was highly praised. Anne Curry is former president of the Historical Association, former vice-president of the Royal Historical Society and Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Professor of Medieval History at the University of Southampton. She has published extensively in French and English and is one of the leading authorities on the Agincourt campaign. Among her many publications are The Battle of Agincourt and Agincourt, A New History.

Review:

"... full of color photos illustrating a graphic narrative of the campaign based on the latest scholarly research. The route of Henry’s army is traced by maps for tourists, whether they are walkers, cyclists or drivers. Important sites are identified and described. Town plans are overlaid with details of their medieval monuments and fortifications. Explorers can follow an itinerary divided into five tours. They culminate in a handy guide to the battlefield and a lively reconstruction of Agincourt, where Henry’s relatively small “band of brothers,” including English and Welsh archers, feathered their caps with an astonishing victory." (Toy Soldier and Model Figure Magazine)
