    1. In my continuing quest to learn about the British monarchy, I picked up this short piece on Henry V which only took a few hours to read. I remember reading about Henry IV and V, but I can't remember. I'm pretty sure this one will end up in this category as well. There is a limited number of sources from this period, so the story is fairly straight forward. Until or unless massive archeology changes our understanding of the military campaigns or a trunk of personal letters and documents shows up, [...]

    2. If you are interested in every battle that Henry V participated in then you should absolutely read this book. It'll only take you a little while to get through because it's a small volume. This book does not include much beyond the planning expertise and the battlefield prowess of Henry V so you might find it a bit of a struggle to keep your interest, but it's worth reading. This is no fault of the author. There's just very limited material available about this king. I know more about Henry V no [...]

    3. Clear and concise review of the life and battles of Henry V before his early death in France. This book does (of course) mention Agincourt, but as I had a book on that battle recently (the excellent Osprey Campaign), I was more interested in his life before and after Agincourt.Very interesting, well written, and well explained. Even those with little knowledge of the era or Henry V should have no trouble understanding it.

    4. This is a slender volume in Osprey's "Leadership, Strategy, Conflict" series. The focus is Henry V, who was one of the last English rulers to have any success in folding onto England's lands in France and the surrounding region.The book begins with a genealogy of the English royal family (starting with Edward II and Isabella. Always fascinating to see how John of Gaunt and Katherine Swynford are so central! Also, the French royal family is depicted as well, starting with Philip III and Isabel of [...]

    5. Review:Immortalised in the plays of Shakespeare, Henry V is the most famous and celebrated of all England's medieval monarchs. Although his most famous battles and conquests took place in France, Henry, as was common amongst medieval aristocracy, was introduced to battle at an early age when he fought with his father, Henry IV, at the battle of Shrewsbury in 1403. On his accession to the throne, Henry turned his attention towards foreign affairs and the English position in France.

    6. This was a very informative read and it fed my brain well. Marcus Cowper tells the life of Henry simply, lays out the politics of the time in a straight-forward manner, and covers the big events in an unbiased way.
