Hey, HenrytheV (by the way, did I tell you that I am glad that your name does not have three I's at the end?), thanks for the response. I have been wanting to read those two (especially At Agincourt). I also collect magazines, like science and history ones (DUH! What else?), and have since read up on the battle of Agincourt. I have passed up the book before because of the French part of it, because I find French history rather dull, but it did not detract from what I have since learned from other sources, so that should be in my next lot. And yes, those big words are fun!
Yes, Azaghal, Beric the Briton is good! Actually I just recently finished The Young Carthaginian and liked that even better. It comes in as #7 on my favorites list, I think. Like Beric the Briton it is in the Ancient period obviously yet is somewhat medieval only in its "feel", but I have gotten some diorama ideas from it. And, I'm glad you read Henty!
As for non-fiction medieval books, I don't have that many, but last summer I read an old one that my Dad gave me a year or two before that called Medieval Warfare by Terence Wise. It is GREAT! You must read it! It gives overviews of castle designs, armor (sheesh, I almost just wrote armor with a "u" like Henty!), seige warfare, and much more. It was a tantalizing read, and I was reading it during the time that I became a Lego collector (the temptation of medieval Legos was just too much for me!). Terence Wise also wrote many other history books, but I have yet to read any. He also is a figure painter like I am.
To all book lovers,
