“A bascinet and hauberk?” he asked.
“Aye, you shall need these before the night is done.” . . .

Treachery, disease, hunger, and death plague their steps as King Henry’s men near their fateful battle with the French army at Agincourt.  Eager to see the world that lies beyond his small Cornish village, 12 year old Hedyn, son of an archer and serf, is thrilled to be chosen to join King Henry’s army as it advances on Normandy.  His excitement quickly gives way to exhaustion in body and spirit, as well as worry for the safety of his newfound friends and comrades.  Can a mysterious stranger with a secretive past offer Hedyn hope amidst the horrors of battle?
