Without Henry V's Navy, the Battle of Agincourt would never have happened. Henry's fleet played a major part in enabling the king to come within reach of final victory in the Hundred Years War against France. Henry's navy was multinational, and comprised his own royal fleet, English merchantmen and many foreign vessels from the Netherlands, the Baltic and Venice. The royal fleet was transformed in Henry's short reign from a few dilapidated craft into a powerful weapon of war, with over thirty fighting vessels, up-to-date technology and four of the biggest ships in Europe. Henry V's Navy is about the men, ships and operations of Henry's sea war. Ian Friel explores everything from shipboard food to how crews and their ships sailed and fought, and takes an in-depth look at the royal ships. He also tells the dramatic and bloody story of the naval conflict, which at times came close to humiliating defeat for the English. AUTHOR: Ian Friel is a historian and writer with an international reputation in maritime history and considerable knowledge of archaeology. He has studied medieval and Tudor maritime history for over 30 years and has published widely on these subjects. He has worked at the National Maritime Museum (NMM), the Mary Rose Trust and other museums. His books include The British Museum Maritime History of Britain and Ireland c 400-2001.
