Slaget vid Azincourt är ett av världens mest berömda slag. En liten sjuk och hungrig armés seger över en fem gånger större fiende. Kung Henrik V beslutar att anfalla Frankrike för att hävda sin rätt som kung, men lider ett massivt nederlag i Harfleur. Trots detta tar han sin svårt sargade här vidare mot ett till synes oundvikligt nederlag.

Den 25 oktober 1415 står hans 6 000 man öga mot öga med 30 000 franska soldater i Azincourt. Vi får följa den råa sanningen om medeltida krigsföring i all dess chockerande brutalitet, smuts och äckel genom ögonen på bågskytten Nicholas Hook. Han har tidigare varit legosoldat i franska armén, men vid hemkomsten till England blir han, istället för dödad pga sitt svek mot hemlandet, upptäckt och värvad av kung Henrik V. Hooks enorma skicklighet med bågen kommer snart till användning igen. Bågskyttarna kom att spela en avgörande roll för utgången av detta fasansfulla blodbad.

Bernard Cornwell är en av världens största författare i disciplinen historiska spänningsromaner. Hans böcker har översatts till 20 språk och sålt i över 20 miljoner exemplar. Slaget är även förevigat av William Shakespeare i pjäsen Henrik V.

    " Maybe it's me, but it seemed rather same ol' same ol'. And the talking saints were ridiculous. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Brooks | 1/27/2014

    " I read this novel three years ago but it seems longer. A good Cornwell novel about man in mission on war. I love all Bernard Cornwell novels but I think this was the last one read. I guess I need to read more. I enjoyed this novel although I can't specifically recall anything that stands out. Very comparable to A. M. Maughan's Harry of Monmouth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chuck Emerson | 1/22/2014

    " I loved this book! It's an incredibly descriptive mixture of historic fact, myth and informed conjecture about what is perhaps the most famous battle in the history of England, Agincourt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irene | 1/22/2014

    " This its a fabulous audio book, and an instance where the narrator made all the difference. Not being a great lover of military history I suspect I would not have made it through a print version, but the audio version was full of excitement and the different characters were vivid and well defined. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 1/19/2014

    " Loved this book. The pages flew by, good characters, interesting historical details. Am definitely going to check out other books Cromwell has written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 12/25/2013

    " While I knew going in that the era of this book was one of violence,the descriptions of the battles (with pikes and swords and maces and battle axes and poleaxes) was horrifying. Following Hook the archer as he madehis way with Henry V's army provided a fascinating look into the times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mjraeder | 11/27/2013

    " Well written as all Cornwell's books are. Using a fictional character allows the author to really place you into history. The book is fast paced and I loved learning the historical facts of life and warfare during the time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Windy | 11/25/2013

    " Bloody, violent, classic Middle English. The tale of an archer, which I learned much about through this story. I'd say a dark beauty. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 D. Griffith | 8/21/2013

    " I like the author, particularly the Sharpe series. His ability to give the flavor of the times is especially good. The power of the church during this time is interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teryl | 3/13/2013

    " Really very interesting. Enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rich | 2/20/2013

    " An enjoyable read. A big fan of Shakespeare's Henry V, so was certainly drawn to the subject matter. It wasn't quite what I was expecting but kept me interested throughout. I enjoyed it enough to seek out other books by Cornwell. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bwid | 10/4/2012

    " Overall, the story followed the plot of the Thomas Hookton novels, except compressed into one volume. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 France | 7/6/2012

    " Bernard Cornwell est un excellent raconteur et c'est avec beaucoup de plaisir que j'ai suivi les aventures de Nick Hook. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gentian | 6/2/2012

    " Standard Cornwell fare - plucky likable but flawed hero, excellent historical research, pacy writing. What is not to love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 5/9/2012

    " Nothing like a good medieval historical novel to get my juices going. This one is a real page-turner and a fast read. Very graphic in some of the details, of course these were violent times. Bernard Cornwell is quite a story-teller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 3/26/2012

    " Liked it, didn't love it. I got a little bored with so many battle/fight scenes but I will try this author again. "
