Know Ye Not Agincourt? by Leslie Barringer is a historical novel set in fifteenth century England and France. It concerns the adventures of an English squire and his friends, their taking part in the month-long Siege of Harfleur and the Battle of Agincourt, and its bitter consequences for all of them. It ends with a brief and unknowing meeting with the young Joan of Arc. The book was published by Nelson in 1936 and has not been republished since. Although written for younger readers, it exhibits some of the high literary quality of the Neustrian trilogy.
