Agincourt, 1415 Goodreads Review
On October 25, 1415, a trapped and vastly outnumbered force of exhausted and demoralized English archers and men-at-arms faced a colossal army of French knights on a desolate field in northern France. What took place that day became one of the greatest moments of the Hundred Years’ War and English history.
Based on chronicles of the times, Agincourt 1415: Field of Blood is a dramatic, minute-by-minute retelling of the battle as seen through the eyes of the commanders and soldiers on both sides. This is a brutal, bloody, and captivating retelling of a major British victory written by a Pulitzer Prize finalist. This work sets a new standard for historical fiction.
My Review of Agincourt, 1415
Well, first off – as I said above, if you enjoy historical fiction, then you will enjoy this book. The characters of Thomas and Sir John really bring the history to life and allow you to enjoy the history in a way that will resonate with more readers. It was broken down into easy to read sections, and there was no place in the book that I ever felt lost. The way this history flowed off the page, made me feel as though I was there, guiding and delighting readers with each page. The writer was able to tackle this book with confidence, which was refreshing! I didn’t feel as though he was fumbling with the information.
Grab this book, and enjoy a delightful read! Medieval history has never read so well!
