From an award-winning historian: "A new and convincing likeness of medieval England's most iconic king" (The Sunday Times). This biography by the bestselling author of The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England takes an insightful look at the life of Henry V, casting new light on a period in history often held up as legend. A great English hero, Henry V was lionized by Shakespeare and revered by his countrymen for his religious commitment, his sense of justice, and his military victories. Here, noted historian and biographer Ian Mortimer takes a look at the man behind the legend and offers a clear, historically accurate, and realistic representation of a ruler who was all too human—and digs up fascinating details about Henry V's reign that have been lost to history, including the brutal strategies he adopted at the Battle of Agincourt. "The most illuminating exploration of the reality of 15th-century life that I have ever read." —The Independent "Compelling, exuberant . . . vivid." —Simon Sebag Montefiore, New York Times–bestselling author of The Romanovs: 1613–1918
