Three Great English Victories: A 3-book Collection of Harlequin, 1356 and Azincourt

On the eve of the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Azincourt comes three classic battle books of The Hundred Years War by the bestselling master of historical fiction, Bernard Cornwell, in one three-book collection for the first time.


HARLEQUIN
1342. The English, led by Edward III, are laying waste to the French countryside. The archers, the common men, are England’s secret weapon. The French know them as Harlequins. Thomas Hookton is one of these archers. But he is also on a personal mission: to avenge his father’s death and retrieve a stolen relic. Thomas begins a quest that will lead him to finally where the two armies face each other at Crecy.



1356
The Hundred Years War rages on and the bloodiest battles are yet to be fought. Across France, towns stand alert to danger. The English army is invading again and the French are hunting them down. Thomas of Hookton, an English archer, is under orders to seek out a lost sword, said to grant certain victory. As the outnumbered English army becomes trapped near the town of Poitiers, Thomas, his men and his sworn enemies will meet in one great and bloody battle.



AZINCOURT
Azincourt, fought on October 25th 1415, on St Crispin's Day, is one of the best known battles of all time. This is the breathtaking story of this momentous battle and its aftermath. From the varying viewpoints of nobles, peasants, archers, and horsemen, Azincourt skilfully brings to life the hours of relentless fighting, the desperation of an army crippled by disease and the exceptional bravery of the English soldiers.
