Myke Cole, author of 'Legion versus Phalanx' and 'The Bronze Lie'
It's quite a feat to write an account of England's most famous battle that makes the reader feel like they're experiencing history that is fresh, new and exhilarating.
Bold and conversational, forensic and vivid, this is an extraordinary history of Agincourt - full of remarkable insight - that grips from the very first word and doesn't let go.
Helen Castor, author of 'She-Wolves'
A thought provoking, thoughtful and fast-paced account of what one might think is one of the best known and understood medieval battles. Despite what we think we know, from reading Livingston's detailed book, it is clear that we aren't really sure we even know exactly where this famous battle was fought!
Robert Woosnam-Savage FSA, Curator Emeritus, Royal Armouries
The battle of Agincourt has had many interpretations. Michael Livingston's is the latest, but also one of the best … It tells a fresh, compelling story of the battle, the campaign that led up to it, and its aftermath.
