VlogDeathmatch - Tagami - Henry V

Final cut for VlogDeathmatch #1. King Henry V. Act 3 Scene III.

The siege of Harfleur, Normandy, France began 18 August 1415 and ended on 22 September when Harfleur surrendered to the English. Here is Shakespeare's adaptation of these events.

Historical footnote: tomorrow, 8 October, will mark 591 years to the day, when Henry's army left Harfleur on the way to Calais. Crossing the Somme, and hoping to evade the French army, Henry rallied his troops for an overwhelming English victory at the Battle of Agincourt 17 days later on 25 October, Saint Crispin's Day.
