    1. A brilliantly composite narrative of Henry V's short life and reign. King for just under 10 years, Henry's life was eventful and significant.

The realisation of Edward III's ambition more than 50 years earlier. He was an able and charismatic leader, intelligent, capable of multi tasking with a f [...]

    2. A brilliant, if short, look into the man who was perhaps the greatest of English medieval kings written by and expert who has spent more than three decades researching the reign. The suggested reading section provides a great number of points for the historian to turn to. Highly recommended to the scholar as well as the general reader.

    3. I really enjoyed this - some might consider it a little dry but it's solidly grounded in fact which I like. I would say this is especially good if you are relatively new to this period of history as it gives a good coverage and background to Henry's reign.
