The Armies of Agincourt Paperback
Part of the Men-at-Arms series
Henry V became King of England in 1413. He was one of the great warrior kings of the country, cast in the same mould as Edward I and Edward III.
He was just, pious, athletic, chivalrous, acquisitive, ruthless and eager to gain honour on the field of battle.
Henry hoped that a successful campaign against the nation's traditional enemy would draw the people together and establish the popularity of the Lancastrian dynasty.
This splendid addition to Osprey's Men-at-Arms series explores the background, organisation and equipment of the armies which fought in one of the most famous conflicts in England's history - the Battle of Agincourt.
