Synopsis

Synopsis

Immortalized in the plays of Shakespeare, Henry V is the most famous and celebrated of all England's medieval monarchs. His succession of victories over the French, combined with his death at an early age, has created an aura of myth around the man and commander that has endured to this day.

Accompanied by the detailed maps, photographs and artwork that readers expect from an Osprey book, this title thoroughly explores Henry's command experience, tracing his development from a young prince struggling against an insurrection to his eventual triumph in Northern France. Author Marcus Cowper examines Henry's key battles and sieges, how he systematically extended English control throughout northern France and how he was perceived by his contemporaries as a military leader. This in-depth analysis extends to Henry's private motivations and aspirations, including the impetus behind some of his controversial military decisions. Learn the truths that set the Bard's stage in this engaging new title from one of Osprey's newest series.

"Author Marcus Cowper looks at the life of Henry V from a young prince struggling against insurrection to his command experience and eventual triumph in Northern France. He gives in-depth analysis to Henry’s private motivations and aspirations, including some of his controversial military decisions and how he was perceived by his contemporaries as a military leader." -www.mataka.org (October 2010)

"It would be great to see Osprey books in more educational settings. The level of detail they provide in a slender book is phenomenal. They remain an excellent value for the money to anyone wanting to learn the details of history. -Greater Games Industry (Spring 2011)
