Book Review - Agincourt

Azincourt Azincourt by Bernard Cornwell

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another great historical fiction from Cornwell. The guy clearly does his research and brings to life the era.

This time, it's the 1400s as King Henry V of England decides that God's on his side in his claim to the French throne. Henry and an army of archers and men at arms invade France, lay siege to Harfleur and battle the French army at Agincourt.

The story revolves around Nick Hook, a young English archer who survives the massacre at Soissons, falls in love with a young French girl and defends himself from sworn enemies from home. Oh, and he hears the voices of two long dead Saints in his head while this is all going on.

Good book and a great history lesson.
