The Chronicle History of King Henry the Fift with His Battell Fought at Agincourt in France was made during World War Two as a moral booster: ‘Once more unto the breach, dear friends’ and all that. I guess its effect depended on the standard British history education which was big on Agincourt and Crécy but a bit hazy on England losing the Hundred Years’ War.
Henry V proves his ability as a soldier and skillful leader by uniting the dissident factions in the English army and goes on to crush the French, against enormous odds, at Agincourt. Arranging a treaty with the French court, he woos Princess Katharine (Renée Asherson) to whom he is formally betrothed as part of the peace agreement.
