"Ian Mortimer's 1415: Henry V's Year of Glory is compelling, exuberant and erudite - combining the vivid drama of medieval character and battle with the vigour of revisionist history" -- Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Young Stalin "Mortimer creates a new and convincing likeness of medieval England's most iconic king" -- Nick Rennison * Sunday Times * "Mortimer writes biographical history with formidable energy and panache... This is the most illuminating exploration of the reality of fifteenth-century life that I have ever read" * Independent * "Ian Mortimer... has virtually single-handedly put medieval history back in the hands of ordinary readers, combining scrupulous research with a wonderfully iconoclastic approach to storytelling" -- Dominic Sandbrook * Daily Telegraph * "Bold...new and unexpected" -- Anne Wroe * The Economist *
