I love reading about English history and anything to do with a major battle is an instant selection. When you add to that fact I think Bernard Cornwell is one heckuva writer, I have a winning combination.

The heroic tale of "Agincourt".....let me refresh your memory: 6,000 Englishmen to 30,000 Frenchmen, Henry V, archers.

Yep. One very engrossing and entertaining read. Cornwell brings history to life, makes battle tactics vivid and always populates his stories with characters who are flawed, humorous, tragic and 'real'.
