“Then call we this, the field of Agincourt.” (Shakespeare: “Henry V”)

1415, Davey and Tom, two eighteen- year old lads looking for excitement, join Henry V’s army despite their parents’ and girlfriends’ wishes. The king is determined to regain his lost lands in France, and the two lads, now archers in his army, set sail for France hoping for adventures and the spoils of war. Their hopes of a quick and glorious victory are shattered during the prolonged siege at Harfleur where they witness the deaths of thousands of their fellow soldiers and some of their friends. Eventually, the king’s forces prevail, but now this small and sickly army must march many miles to meet the over-confident French army at Agincourt. Will the dispirited English army have any chance this time? Will our heroes return to England rich and unharmed to marry their sweethearts?

Based on much historical research, this novel gives the reader a new and distinctive insight into what it was like to be a medieval soldier at one of England’s finest military events.
