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 consultant 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 by way of Shakespeare right into a champion of English nationalism. yet does he quite should be regarded as 'the maximum guy who ever governed England'?

In Ian Mortimer's groundbreaking e-book, he portrays Henry within the pivotal 12 months of his reign; recording the dramatic occasion of 1415, he bargains the fullest, such a lot unique and least romanticised view we now have of Henry and of what he did. the result's not just a desirable reappraisal of Henry; it brings to the fore many unpalatable truths which biographies and army historians have mostly overlooked. on the centre of the e-book is the crusade which culminated within the conflict of Agincourt: a slaughter floor designed to not improve England's curiosity without delay yet to illustrate God's approval of Henry's royal authority on each side of the channel.

1415 was once a yr of non secular persecution, own affliction and one horrendous conflict. this can be the tale of that yr, as noticeable over the shoulder of its such a lot cold-hearted, such a lot bold and so much celebrated hero.
