A likely source for Shakespeare’s Henriad, The Famous Victories of Henry V charts the arc of Henry V from his riotous youth to his conquest of France. Henry’s contentious relationship with both English law and his father finds a counterpoint in the story of John Cobler and his friend Dericke, reluctant soldiers scheming for an easier life.
