I read this one some time ago. A facinating story told very much in a way that brings history to life. I don't think I have ever been disapointed in a Cornwell book, can you belive it's now 30 years since the first Sharp book was published !
I just need to read the Burning land and The Fort now and that will be me up to date.
I've got the book as I'm a sucker for history,normally it's the RN or WW1 but this is a rattling good book.
Henry won because the weather was foul and he picked a spot that forced the Frenchies into a bottleneck.
He killed a lot of prisoners and there was a bit of a fuss later on by the Liberal/Labour Party! but that was the accepted norm in those days if you couldn't look after them and they may attack your rear[As in the Criterion and Albany Pompey pubs]
I just wondered if Shakespeare's epic play is ever performed in France,it was a crushing defeat but they tend to gloss over those.
