Azincourt by Bernard Cornwell – Book Review [Bane of Kings]


Bane of Kings writes a review of the novel Azincourt by Bernard Cornwell, king of all things historical fiction. This standalone tale by Cornwell narrates the famous Battle of Azincourt, fought on October 25th 1415 (St Crispin’s Day), and is published by Harper Collins. Or at least, the edition used for this review was.

“A bloody, gritty novel that brings the Battle of Azincourt to life. Cornwell weaves a wonderful novel that you won’t want to put down.” ~The Founding Fields

Note: This novel is titled Agincourt in the USA.
