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 considered the good English hero. Lionised in his personal lifetime for his victory at Agincourt, his piety and his rigorous program of justice, he was once increased by way of Shakespeare right into a champion of English nationalism. yet does he quite need to be considered 'the maximum guy who ever governed England'?

In Ian Mortimer's groundbreaking ebook, he portrays Henry within the pivotal 12 months of his reign; recording the dramatic occasion of 1415, he deals the fullest, so much specific and least romanticised view now we 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 develop England's curiosity at once yet to illustrate God's approval of Henry's royal authority on either side of the channel.

1415 used to be a 12 months of spiritual persecution, own affliction and one horrendous conflict. this can be the tale of that 12 months, as obvious over the shoulder of its such a lot cold-hearted, so much formidable and so much celebrated hero.

Example text

Norma Landau read the manuscript with great care and made many helpful suggestions. My greatest debt is to Martin Shapiro who has read, edited, commented on, and suffered with the manuscript in all its forms. This book would never have been completed without his assistance and support. Page xi Preface Given the long and rich tradition of legal and historical scholarship, there has been surprisingly little work devoted to the history of the Anglo-American law of evidence. Although much recent scholarship in English legal history has focused on various aspects of the criminal justice system, relatively little attention has centered on the evidentiary aspects of that system.

But many concepts of the casuistical tradition, as represented by the works of William Perkins, Jeremy Taylor, Samuel Pufendorf, and others, were trans- Page 15 posed to what became moral philosophy in the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. English casuistry of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries rejected the doctrine of "casuistical probabilism" associated with the Jesuits, a doctrine that required only a single authority to justify a course of conduct. It also rejected purely emotional or intuitive moral outcomes.

What they said they did and ought to do was an important aspect of how the English and American people made and came to terms with their laweven apart from the possible light that what was said may shed on what was done. And there is some reason to believe that the saying did have some impact on the doing. So this book proceeds largely at the level of doctrine, not in the narrow sense of the legally authoritative, but in the broader sense of what was written about how the law was and should be.
