Are you ready for a new book review? Here is one that I read a while ago, and somehow never wrote the review! Not sure what I was thinking, but better late than never, right? Agincourt 1415 is a battle that is still widely discussed today, for many different reasons… but I guess I better jump into the review now!
This book was amazing! I really liked the many different viewpoints given. Since this book is told from the perspective of the battle commanders, these pages will transport you back to the battle. It also will give you the feeling that you might have experienced this turbulent field yourself. As the battle rages, you are going to be given the perspective of each move, each thought, each maneuver as they were called out, felt, and dealt with by the commander.
I honestly got lost in this book, it was so easy to read and enjoyable. It is a bit gory in parts, so if you are squeamish, that is my warning to you. Otherwise, the book is filled with action! Get ready to experience Agincourt like never before!
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.
