An extraordinary and dramatic depiction of the legendary battle of Agincourt from the number one historical novelist
What the papers say:
Praise for Azincourt 'If Bernard Cornwell was born to write one book, this is it. No other historical novelist has acquired such a mastery of the minutiae of warfare in centuries past. No one else could hope to take Shakespeare's Henry V, strip it of its rhetoric and tell the unvarnished truth about the Battle of Agincourt' Telegraph 'A runaway success' Guardian 'Nobody in the world does this stuff better than Cornwell - action set six hundred years ago is a fresh and vital as six days ago, with rough, tough men at war, proving once again that nothing changes - least of all great storytelling' Lee Child 'An extrordinary and dramatic description of the legendary battle of Agincourt from the number one historical novelist' Hampshire View 'a vivid, breathtaking and meticulously well research account' Paisley Daily Express Praise for Bernard Cornwell and Sword Song: 'This is typical Cornwell, meticulously researched, massive inscope, brilliant in execution' The Sun 'Great action scenes, rich in period detail, are underpinned by a feeling for the passions that shaped the Britain we know today' Sunday Telegraph, Seven Magazine Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation' Daily Mail 'Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched' Observer
