The distinguished historical novelist recreates that brief, foolhardy expedition by a small expeditionary force to Northern France, for the English King to regain the realm that he believed was his by right. The siege of Harfleur, the ravages of disease, the gradual encirclement, the decision to break out and march through hostile territory to Calais, all lead up to the rainy dawn of October 25, 1415 - St. Crispin's day - when the ragged , hungry English came face to face with a mighty and magnificently accoutred French army and won one of the most overwhelming victories in the chronicles of war.
