Azincourt

Azincourt - Bernard Cornwell Excellent page turner of a book. Follows one Nicholas Hook, Archer, from trouble on the Lord's estate to trouble in London to joining the king's army in France. He survives these adventures, and the road leads to Agincourt (the title uses the spelling of the French village, rather than the usual English version). Sometimes a little contrived - how two particular people happen to meet on a battlefield filled with 25,000 people is perhaps a little far-fetched, but you can forgive him that when it is such a rip-roaring read. Full of great historical detail but it's a good story that rolls along at a good pace too.One of his best.
