Agincourt 1415

2015 marks the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt. Agincourt 1415 – A Graphic Novel captures the events surrounding that cold, wet October day in vivid and brutal detail. The Battle of Agincourt is the story of courage within the English ranks and the masterful battlefield tactics employed by Henry V. It is also the story of bitter factional infighting amongst the French; of a high-stakes gamble which could have annihilated the English Army, and of the cold-blooded murder of French prisoners as the battle hung in the balance. Conveyed via a mix of third-person contemporary narrative and the first-person experiences of three fictional characters that fought alongside Henry that day, the book has been written to entertain and educate readers old and young alike. Meticulously researched in consultation with Professor Anne Curry, the world’s leading authority on the battle, the armour, weapons, tactics and sheer brutality of medieval warfare have been faithfully depicted in the book’s spectacular full colour illustrations, whilst the supporting text informs readers of the historical events and decisions that would lead to Henry V’s victory against all odds. Henry V’s victory over France on the 25th of October in the year 1415 was a truly remarkable feat, and one which has gained near-mythical status in England’s long and bloody history. Agincourt 1415 brings the legendary battle and the events surrounding it to life.

Arminius Vambéry and the British Empire

Between East and West
Author: David Mandler
Publisher: Lexington Books
ISBN: 1498538258
Category: History
Page: 214
View: 2989
This book frames the fascinating life and influential works of the Hungarian Orientalist, Arminius Vambéry (1832–1913), within the context of nineteenth century identity politics and contemporary criticisms of Orientalism. Based on extensive research, the book authoritatively presents a comprehensive narrative of Arminius Vambéry’s multiple identities as represented in Hungary and in Great Britain. The author traces Vambéry’s development from a marginalized Jewish child to a recognized authority on Hungarian ethnogenesis as well as on Central Asian and Turkish geopolitical developments. Throughout the book, the reader meets Vambéry as the Hungarian traveler to Central Asia, the British and Ottoman secret agent, the mostly self-taught professor of Oriental languages, the political pundit, and the highly sought after guest lecturer in Great Britain known for his fierce Russophobe pronouncements. The author devotes special attention to the period that transformed Vambéry from a linguistically talented but penniless Hungarian Jewish youth into a pioneering traveler in the double-disguise of a Turkish effendi masquerading as a dervish to Central Asia in 1863–64. He does so because Vambéry’s published observations of an arena still closed to Europeans facilitated his emergence as a colorful personality and a significant authority on Central Asia and Turkey in Great Britain for the next fifty years. In addition, the book also devotes significant space to Vambéry’s dynamic relationship to his most famous student, Ignác Goldziher (1850–1921), who is considered to be one of the founders of modern Islamic Studies. Lastly, Vambéry’s impact on Bram Stoker, the author of Dracula, is also explored. Original Language: English
