Conquestby Juliet Barker
Barker tells the dramatic story of the thirty years when England ruled France at the point of a sword. Henry V’s second invasion of France in 1417 launched a campaign that would place the crown of France on an English head. The appearance of a visionary peasant girl, Joan of Arc, was able to halt the English advance, but not for long.

This book has a very good narrative flow and describes the times in an unusual (for a history book) and engaging way. The focus on Joan of Arc is pronounced, but this is a part of the charm of this book.
