Product Overview

Thanks in part to Shakespeare, Henry V is one of England''s best-known monarchs. The image of the king leading his army against the French, and the great victory at Agincourt, are part of English historical tradition. Yet, though indeed a soldier of exceptional skill, Henry V''s reputation needs to be seen against a broader background of achievement.
This sweepingly majestic book is based on the full range of primary sources and sets the reign in its full European context. Christopher Allmand shows that Henry V not only united the country in war but also provided domestic security, solid government, and a much needed sense of national pride. The book includes an updated foreword which takes stock of more recent publications in the field.
"A far more rounded picture of Henry as a ruler than any previous study."--G.L. Harris, "The Times"
