Barkers Agincourt book promised much for this one. But I am a bit disappointed. There isn't as much analysis and historical background in Conquest as there was in Agincourt as that makes it a much duller book to read, at least for me.
About 400 pages of the day to day history of the struggle between France (the Armagnac faction, incidentally my aunts!) and England gets repetetive at a certain point.
A somewhat shorter book, focussing more on the grand history and less on the petit histoire would have been more interesting for me, but Conquest is well researched and written and paints a good picture of Medieval warfare and diplomacy.
