Publisher's Summary

This insightful look at the life of Henry V and the Battle of Agincourt casts new light on a period in history often held up as legend. A great English hero, Henry V was lionized by Shakespeare and revered by his countrymen for his religious commitment, his sense of justice, and his military victories.
Here, noted historian and biographer Ian Mortimer takes a look at the man behind the legend and offers a clear, historically accurate, and realistic representation of a ruler who was all too human.

Accessible, grounded, enjoyable

Excellent narration meets excellent history for a broad audience--while displaying real academic rigor. By approaching the year day by day and in paying attention to exactly where the money went, Mortimer shows how Henry spent his time and his money. How could you do better to see what a person values? Mortimer also frankly addresses the limitations of his approach, while defending what he believes (and I agree) it adds to a discussion of Henry. Thus, Mortimer comes across as informed, intelligent, and intellectually honest. The best history book I've read in several years.

Thoroughly enjoyed.

What did you like about this audiobook?

I liked the progression according to the calendar. It gave me a chance to understand just how hard it was to get an invasion planned and to pull it off.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

This is the first history book I have read like this. I like it very much.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

He was easy for me to follow and I didn't get annoyed even after an hour or so.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?
