9780753555453: 24 Hours at Agincourt

‘Jean de Croy had sworn a remarkable pact with eighteen of his fellow knights: they would fight as a body and kill the English king, or die in the attempt. And so they did – launching themselves at the English line. Croy and all eighteen of these knights were killed in fierce fighting, but not before they had got close enough to the king to strike repeated blows on his battle helmet, one of them severely damaging the crown that was welded to it – so that two of its rubies were smashed off.’

In 24 Hours at Agincourt, Michael Jones brings the iconic battle vividly to life, drawing on countless authentic eyewitness accounts to showcase both sides of the conflict in a panoramic tour-de-force.

Widely published in Britain and the United States, he has written on the battles of Bosworth, Agincourt, Stalingrad and Leningrad and is co-author, with Philippa Gregory and David Baldwin, of The Women of the Cousins’ War.

Descrizione libro Ebury Publishing, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 240 x 164 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Agincourt was an astonishing clash of arms, a pivotal moment in the Hundred Years War and the history of warfare in general. In August 1415, King Henry V claimed the throne of France and landed an army in Normandy. Two months later, outside the small village of Agincourt in Picardy, he was preparing for certain defeat. On 25 October his exhausted, starving and ailing troops faced a far larger French army, whose soldiers were fresh for combat and determined to destroy their opponents. But what was to take place in the following 24 hours, it seemed only the miraculous intervention of God could explain. Interlacing eyewitness accounts, background chronicle and documentary sources with a new interpretation of the battle s onset, acclaimed military historian Michael Jones takes the reader into the heart of this extraordinary feat of arms. He brings the long bowmen and knights to life, portrays the dilemmas of the commanders and shows the brutal reality on the ground, as archers seized swords, daggers and even mallets to beat their opponents, and heavily armoured men-at-arms sank into knee-deep mud in a bloody fight that astounded the courts of Europe.
