 Another top book

Anyone who reads Bernard Cornwall knows what to expect. A well written story based around actual historical events, which is fast moving and engaging. This book delivers all this in Spadefulls and is hugely enjoyable. We follow our hero from enrolment to the battle with the usual Sharpesque rising hrough the ranks. The descriptions of the locations and battles are superb and make the book difficult to put down. Well worth a read.

 You can rely on Cornwell

As a huge Cornwell fan, having read all the Sharpe novels, the Grail quest and Arthur books, had to read this to help complete the set. Well, as expected, this was normal Cornwell fare, excellent on detail, great characters and of course the old cliché of a page turning yarn! This book is a dramatisation of the battle of Agincourt from the view of one of the many English archers. As with Cornwell you get a strong lead that you can identify with, good female sidekick and the nasty villains. As always with his books, it runs at an excellent pace making you want to keep reading the next chapter.
The only downside for me was that this was quite similar in many ways to his Grail quest trilogy; even the main characters name is not too dissimilar, even referencing him in this book! However that being said, this is still a great read, so 5 stars as ever for the historical fiction master.

 Not bad

This was the first Bernard Cornwal book i have read. He seems to be pretty well represented in the historical fiction section so thought i would give one of his books a go.

Overall i didnt think it was bad. The story plods along nicely, so you care for the caracters enough for them to make it through to the end of the book. The descriptions of every day life are good and it pulls you into the medieval world nicely. Wasnt sure what to make of the lead character hearing Saints having conversations in his head. Whilst i appreciate religion played an important role in this period, it didnt quite sit right with me. The action scenes dragged on a little too long for my liking and became repetative. The siege was a bit tedious to read (Ironically like the siege itself) and the final battle turned into a slog of "He bashed the knight on the head, then hit another one" a hundred times.

Overall a fairly good read which seemed to lack the exciting action of a Scarrow book, or the feeling of an epic story which Conn Igulden pulls off with ease.

 another good read

Another amazing book by Cornwell, I started off reading the sharpe books years ago, and was curious when i saw this and decided to give it ago and im glad i did! amazingly well written and detailed (as if you would expect anything else form such an author), matches up to sharpe or maybe even beats it, a must read for any cornwell fan.

 A great read

This is the first Bernard Cornwell novel I have read and will be reading more! I am now a fan! I love historical novels based upon actual events and this one was a great read, it painted a vivid picture of the horrors of the battlefield and the power of the english longbows. I suggest reading this to enlighten yourself about this famous battle you will not be let down!
