Reviews

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 *
