Summary

King Henry V has defeated the French, but he has yet to grasp the crown of France. He returns to finish the job which was begun at Agincourt. At his side is his mentor, Sir William Strongstaff, Knight of the Garter. The oldest man in the army, he has yet to become a mere observer, and he is sent on a diplomatic mission to Burgundy and an alliance with Duke John the Fearless. 

When the Scots ally with the French and kill the king’s brother in battle, it seems that the campaign is over, but the English archers and men at arms show their enemies that they reign supreme on the battlefield. Concluding at the battle of Verneuil, The Battle for France takes England a little closer to the crown of France.

Good listen

Good as always. Marston York is a brilliant narrator. The story seems to stick the historical facts around the main character. That's what I enjoy.

I have read and listened to the series. I loved every minute. I just wished Will Strongstaff would have been able to enjoy retirement.

Excellent series of a boy who turned into a Warrior.

Griff Hosker had me captivated as storyteller and loved Marston York’s narration. Excellent series. Good study of history from Black Prince to Henry V.
