1415 : Henry V’s year of glory

An epic account of King Henry V and the mythical conflict of Agincourt, from the writer of the bestselling Time Traveller's advisor to Medieval England.
Henry V is thought of as the nice English hero. Lionised in his personal lifetime for his victory at Agincourt, his piety and his rigorous program of justice, he used to be increased via Shakespeare right into a champion of English nationalism. yet does he fairly should be considered 'the maximum guy who ever governed England'?

To some, Liberalism involved the principle of pacifism. There were certainly elements within the Liberal party which opposed the involvement of Britain in the war.

Britain had also made preparations to despatch a British Expeditionary Force (BEF) to assist the French armies to repel a German attack. By 1914, therefore, a de facto alliance existed between Britain and France, although the precise nature of Britain’s military obligations was to be defined more precisely after the actual outbreak of war. This chapter will examine Britain’s military role in the war, together with the political, social and economic impact of the war on Britain in the future. These themes will tie in with all the other chapters on the inter-war period.

When the latter established himself in power in 1916 he proved that the war could be run by effective leadership without a party base. Hence the Coalition Government, combined with the personal appeal and effectiveness of Lloyd George, cancelled out the advantages which war seemed to hold out to the Liberals in 1914. Labour were also in a difficult position on the outbreak of war. Although they had managed to secure a solid base of seats in the House of Commons (30 in 1906, 40 in January 1910 and 42 in December 1910), they were not even close to achieving a breakthrough.
