  1. Really enjoyed the piece on Henry V and the ‘Band of Brother’s’ speech. I’m English, and an archer. I took my son and eldest daughter to the battlefield at Agincourt on the 600th anniversary of the battle in 2015.
    I wholeheartedly believe that ‘this story shall the good man teach his son’, because it’s a great tale of triumph over overwhelming odds (estimated at 4 or 5 to 1).
    Shakespeare really knew how to weave words to stir the deepest emotions – and I’d say Churchill was able to do the same. His ‘We shall fight them on the beaches’ speech was clever on a very deep level. Every word was a word from Anglo-Saxon Old English – except the final word, ‘surrender’, which was borrowed from Norman French. I think that contrast jarred English hearts at a subconscious level, and helped give the nation the will to resist and to fight to the bitter end. It was a spell of words cast by a master wordsmith, and scholar of Anglo-Saxon. Anyway, I digress.
    Thank you, Jocko for putting your own spin on the Henry V speech. I’ll never listen to the Branagh version the same way again, though!
    Interestingly, Laurence Olivier (RAF during World War II, but not a front line pilot, I believe), was asked to produce and star in Henry V during World War II as a propoganda device to remind the British what they were fighting for – so Olivier had good reason to put as much authenticity into his delivery of the speech as possible.
