Young King Henry V has been arguing with the French over territory rights. Feeling insulted and wronged by the perceived French inflexibility, the king rallies together his troops to invade. In France, a far larger and more heavily armed cavalry force awaits. Back home, three assassins are plotting to murder the king before his campaign can even begin.
A story that depicts both the glory and the horror of war, Henry V contains inspiring speeches, rousing action, and a charming romance across language barriers.
Shakespeare is indeed one of the greatest authors ever, but some of the discussion in French were hard to follow
