I just didn't care for this book I felt like it relied too much on contemporary and Shakespearean accounts of history that are widely considered to be in accurateAlso I thought some of the dialogue was weird and stilted Why Hotspur Percy and his father were the only characters to speak in a dialogue that was not perfect modern English was beyond me Even when interacting with the characters from other countries they managed to speak perfectly and then there was the Percys I really disliked that part of the bookTo be honest I just finished up The Bloody Field of Shrewsbury which made it harder to enjoy this book The characterizations of the primary characters in both books were so vastly different it was like reading about completely different people

Harry of MonmouthFrom book coverThe story of Henry V the soldier king who forged England's greatnessOne of the most exciting historic. My favorite King Henry V novel Maughan takes the reader when Prince Hal is just a small child grandson to John of Gaunt Duke of Lancaster past his father's rebellion and usurpation of the throne from King Richard II to Harry becoming king and his battles in France to regain that kingdom by right of blood Maughan describes the battle of Agincourt as if you're hearing King Henry give that great speech in Shakespeare's Henry the Fifth play Good novel I've always reread when I need something familiar
