Movie Details

As military historians are well aware, one of the most astonishing of all battles unfolded on the fields of Agincourt, France, on October 25, 1415 amid the Hundred Years War. That day, a French army comprised of some 30,000 men confronted a comparatively tiny English force led by King Henry V. The French leaders expected to lead an annihilation, but in fact the very opposite occurred: the English obliterated their enemies with stunning and decisive force. This documentary program travels back in time to that legendary conflict for a detailed onscreen reconstruction of the said battle, dramatized "eyewitness" accounts featuring actors, graphics of maps, and analytical commentary by historian Dr. David Chandler. Brian Blessed (I, Claudius) narrates. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
