Beschreibung

In this landmark study of Agincourt, prize-winning author Juliet Barker draws upon a huge range of sources, published and unpublished, English and French, to give a compelling account of a battle upon which so many legends have been built. But she also looks behind the action on the field to paint a portrait of the age. A mad king, murderous dukes, scheming bishops, knightly heroes, surgeons, heralds, spies, and pirates: the story of Agincourt has them all.

Kritikerstimmen

"[A] wonderfully vivid, clear and involving book that is destined to become a classic account." (The Economist)
"A lively, stimulating account of this bloody day of battle. It is full of both serious research and entertaining gems. Barker makes the politics of the Hundred Years' War lucidly comprehensible." (The Times)

Assemblage of short stories

Overall the author provides great details on the scenes behind the battle at Agincourt and the days before this scene. What I personally miss is a bit a connecting storyline; you will hear hundreds of short stories but the overall picture is at least in my opinion sadly missing.
