Synopsis

Agincourt 1415 A Graphic Novel by Will Gill

2015 marks the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt. Agincourt 1415 - A Graphic Novel captures the events surrounding that cold, wet October day in vivid and brutal detail. The Battle of Agincourt is the story of courage within the English ranks and the masterful battlefield tactics employed by Henry V. It is also the story of bitter factional infighting amongst the French; of a high-stakes gamble which could have annihilated the English Army, and of the cold-blooded murder of French prisoners as the battle hung in the balance. Conveyed via a mix of third-person contemporary narrative and the first-person experiences of three fictional characters that fought alongside Henry that day, the book has been written to entertain and educate readers old and young alike. Meticulously researched in consultation with Professor Anne Curry, the world's leading authority on the battle, the armour, weapons, tactics and sheer brutality of medieval warfare have been faithfully depicted in the book's spectacular full colour illustrations, whilst the supporting text informs readers of the historical events and decisions that would lead to Henry V's victory against all odds. Henry V's victory over France on the 25th of October in the year 1415 was a truly remarkable feat, and one which has gained near-mythical status in England's long and bloody history. Agincourt 1415 brings the legendary battle and the events surrounding it to life.
