    schema:reviewBody "When Henry V and his band of brothers defeated the assembled might of French chivalry on a rainy October day in 1415, it was a defining moment in English history. The battle of Agincourt became part of the nation's self-image. For six centuries it has been celebrated as a triumph of the underdog in the face of overwhelming odds, of discipline and determination over arrogance and egotism, of stout-hearted common men over dissolute aristocrats. But what is the truth behind the battle upon which so many legends have been built? In this landmark study of Agincourt, author Juliet Barker draws upon a huge range of sources, published and unpublished, to give an account of the battle. But she also looks behind the action on the field to paint a portrait of the age, from the logistics of preparing to launch one of the biggest invasion forces ever seen at the time to the dynamics of daily life in peace and war. She shows how the chivalry and piety that underpinned medieval society, and the contradictions inherent in trying to uphold them, were reflected in the fate of those caught up in the brutal power struggles of the period. A mad king, murderous dukes, scheming bishops, knightly heroes, surgeons, heralds, spies and pirates: the story of Agincourt has them all." ;
