Agincourt is one of the epic battles of history. It was fought between two badly matched armies that met in atrocious conditions on St Crispin’s Day 1415. It has always been held to be the triumph of the longbow against the armoured knight, the common man against the feudal aristocrats. But these are myths. Bernard Cornwell depicts the reality behind these myths, culminating in the battle seen from several points of view on both sides.
