'Jean de Croy had sworn a remarkable pact with eighteen of his fellow knights: they would fight as a body and kill the English king, or die in the attempt. And so they did, launching themselves at the English line. Croy and all eighteen of these knights were killed in fierce fighting, but not before they had got close enough to the king to strike repeated blows on his battle helmet, one of them severely damaging the crown that was welded to it, so that two of its rubies were smashed off. ' In 24 Hours at Agincourt, Michael Jones brings the iconic battle vividly to life, drawing on countless authentic eyewitness accounts to showcase both sides of the conflict in a panoramic tour-de-force.
