Battle of Agincourt - On St. Crispin's Day

Henry V rallied his troops before the famous battle at Agincourt, fought between England and France in 1415. Shakespeare gave words to the English king - "We few, we happy few, we band of brothers" - which have been voiced, by many actors, in the succeeding centuries.

This clip, featuring Kenneth Branagh, depicts one interpretation.
