In eleven short years he overcame the might of the Persian Empire and campaigned across the face of most of the known world.

The most famous battle in English history, Hastings was the culmination of one of the medieval world's most daring military expeditions - and a truly decisive battle. It marked the end of Anglo-Saxon England, winning the land hungry Normans a new kingdom, and ensuring that Britain's destiny lay in Western Europe rather than with Scandinavia. The author, Chris Gravett, of the Royal Armouries at the Tower of London, has written several titles in the Osprey Men-at -arms series.
Immortalized by Shakespeare, Agincourt is an epic of courage and hard fighting. Brought to bay after the long siege of Harfleur, Henry V's army was soaked, starving and riddled with disease, and facing a French army at odds of more than 3 to 1. How the English beat off their attackers and slaughtered the flower of French nobility is vividly described in this volume. Matthew Bennett is a lecturer at the RMA Sandhurst and a specialist in medieval military history.
