One of the great triumphs of British warfare, there can be few victories so complete, or achieved against such heavy odds, as that won by Henry V on 25 October 1415 on the fields of Agincourt. Christopher Hibbert's compelling account of the utter defeat of Charles VI's army at Agincourt combines historical accuracy with a lucid and forceful narrative style. 'Written with vigour and lucidity' TLS
