"Azincourt" is the name of Bernard Cornwell's last book which I have just managed to borrow from the library. I hadn't realised until I started reading it that the place English know as Agincourt is known to the French as Azincourt. This is a small town, or maybe just a village, in Picardy in north-west France whereas the place known to the French as Agincourt is in north-east France. I am so far just half-way through the book, but it is as easy to read as all Bernard Cornwell's other books have been, and is a great way to learn some of the history of England!
