Bernard Cornwell, author of "Agincourt," interviewed

National Review Online has posted an interview with author Bernard Cornwell discussing his new book Agincourt. The interview is in MP3 format.

The interview was conducted by John J. Miller for the regular feature "Between the Covers."

From the website:

“The more I researched the battle, the more I...discovered that probably most of the French casualties weren't killed by arrows at all,” says Bernard Cornwell, author of the novel Agincourt. “They were killed in some ghastly hand-to-hand fighting, using butchers’ weapons like pole-axes...it was a massacre, it was a slaughter.”
