Henry V, King of England - History of England
J. M. Gardner
Henry V is one of the most famous monarchs England ever had. His story is one of incredible rise against overwhelming odds: as heir to the throne, he began as a complete failure, his reputation very low as he was an insecure ruler and victim to plots and cabals to remove him from power. While England was at war with France, everything seemed to go from terrible to terribly worse. The Battle of Agincourt was one of the most impressive gambles ever taken in military history. Henry V should never had won it, for the English were outmanned by the French six to one; but he did, so bravely and brilliantly that it would transform everything for him, ultimately giving him the means to turn upside down England's failing structures and bring back a much-needed sense of national pride. Discover the thrilling story of the underdog fighting for seemingly out-of-reach success, and making history on his way, with this lively and much-documented audiobook.
