Summary:
"This is not a biography in the traditional sense. Too few of Henry's writings survive to provide the kind of material necessary to describe in detail the emotional or daily life of the man. It is rather a history of Henry's actions, of the world in which they took place and the impact that they had upon the Europe of his time."--Jacket.
