What course would English history have taken had Henry V been defeated at Agincourt? What if Joan of Arc had not galvanized French resistance at Orleans? Venning explores these and many more what-ifs during the reigns of kings Edward III to Henry VI, focusing on decisive moments in Britain's history. Grounded in the actual forces and tensions of the Middle Ages, this counterfactual study illuminates the reality as well as discussing engrossing speculative scenarios.
