Agincourt is probably the most celebrated battle in English history. Dramatized by Shakespeare, manipulated for propaganda purposes, it has passed into legend. This book strips away layers of myth to provide a graphic account of what really happened on that day in October 1415. It examines the causes of the conflict, surveys its aftermath, charts the ways in which it has been represented - and misrepresented - over the centuries, and explores the French view of their defeat.
