Description
"The Battle of Agincourt of 1415 has endured in popular awareness on the strength of Shakespeare's Henry the Fifth. The historical Henry V bears scant resemblance to Falstaff's royal drinking buddy: in [Juliet] Barker's lushly detailed account, Henry V was a pious warrior, an able administrator, and an aggressive diplomat.... [Barker's] emphasis on the organization of the campaign that culminated at Agincourt delivers a superb description of how a medieval military force was raised. Founded on feudal precepts of lord-and-vassal obligation, Henry's army and that of France were personalistic, a trait Barker turns to positive advantage in portraying the combatants ... [as] actual people, not just a melee of thousands."ŚBooklist
