Agin Court was an astonishing clash of arms, a pivotal moment in the Hundred Years War and the history of warfare in general.
King Henry V's exhausted troops were preparing for certain defeat as they faced a far larger French army. What was to take place in the following 24 hours, it seemed only the miraculous intervention of God could explain.
Interlacing eyewitness accounts, background chronicle and documentary sources with a new interpretation of the battle's onset, acclaimed military historian Michael Jones takes the reader into the heart of this extraordinary feat of arms.
