AGINCOURT: Battle of the Scarred King
Well-written and extensive analysis of original sources, including the French battle plan that still survives today, provides a new interpretation of the location, battle formation, and progress of the 25 October 1415 battle. Discusses some of the popular myths surrounding the Hollywood version of the battle. Includes 16 pages of color illustrations and numerous black and white maps.

The English invasion of France in 1415 saw them take the French port of Harfleur after a long siege, following which Henry was left with a sick and weakened army, which he chose to march across Normandy to the port of Calais against the wishes of his senior commanders. The French had assembled a superior force and shadowed the English Army before finally blocking its route. The battle that followed was an overwhelming victory for the English, with the French suffering horrific casualties. Agincourt opened the door for Henry V's further conquests in France.

Note: Crecy: Battle of Five Kings (OMM book number 230770) is another readable account by Livingston that suggests an alternate location of another decisive medieval battle.1 vol, 320 pgs 2023 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING
