Band of Brothers: Agincourt

Written by: Richard Foreman

Submitted By: Victoria Carruthers

Excellent climax to one of the author's best series of books. Foreman rightly credits Bernard Cornwell at end for being an influence and fans of Azincourt should also enjoy the whole Band of Brothers trilogy. Characters such as Edward Fordham and Henry V are well drawn and people with a dry sense of humour will enjoy some of the dialogue and asides. One criticism of series is that we do not see enough of the campaign from the French side but that doesn't really matter in light of books pace, action and historical insight.
