    Although generally thought of as the hero of Agincourt, recent studies have depicted Henry V as an obsessive egoist. Matusiak's biography takes a fresh look at the life and nine-year reign of Henry and gives a more balanced view of the king, looking at the often neglected role of those who supported him, notably Henry and Thomas Beaumont; and showing Henry as indeed a man of prodigious gifts whose military achievements made a profound impression on his contemporaries.
