Agincourt from the French Side


We often think of the Battle of Agincourt from the English perspective; Henry V’s St. Crispins Day speech is just one of the mental images that Shakespeare indelibly etched on the history of that event, for better or worse.

By contrast, THL Lorraine Devereaux provides us with a collection of observations by a knight who was there — the French knight, Jehan de Wavrin. (The excerpts are from the book Eyewitness to History, by John Carey)
