Set in the castle-period:), it follows the path of an English retainer in his mid teens, Guy Aylmer as he faithfully obeys his lord's orders to accompany his Mistress, Lady Margaret, and her two children, Agnes and Charlie, as they go to live in France as hostages to keep the peace as the countries of England and France are caught in a war. Upon their arrival, they suddenly find themselves in the midst of a dark, tense struggle between the people of rank and the ruthless butchers of parish. Forced into tight circumstances, Guy is entrusted with his lord's family's safety and races to avoid foes and connect with allies. Filled with sword fights, disguises, life-risking adventures, mystery, accurate history, and a pinch of moderate romance, 'At Agincourt' is a G. A. Henry novel you won't be able to easily put down.
That been said it is a very good read and I would highly recommend it to anybody who are either fans of the genre, or interested in a gentle introduction to the historical happenings leading up to the battle.
When 15 year old Guy is sent as a hostage to Paris, he finds himself embroiled in political turmoil. The bloodthirsty Butchers guild keeps Paris in a state of anarchy, cowing the Government officials with riots and murders. Guy goes through many hairbreadth escapes and near misses before finding himself on the battlefield of Agincourt.

The story was interesting and told of a period of English history that was unfamiliar to me.
