Good King Harry

Good King Harry - Denise Giardina "Good King Harry" brings us Henry V as Shakespeare never showed him: a compassionate man of the people, as well as a soldier. Starting with his boyhood in Wales and ending with his death, Henry's tale is told in the first person. The book is obviously well-researched, teeming with historic figures and events. The author brings the early 15th century vividly to life, warts and all; she shows the challenges and failures as well as the triumphs along Henry's way to the crown.Highly recommended for the history buffs on my list.
