It has become a common custom in storytelling that a leader of an army would give a speech to boost the morale of their army on the eve of battle. The most famous of these speeches in literature would be the St. Crispin’s Day Speech from Shakespeare’s Henry V. Henry V of England said this speech to arouse his army right before they defeated the French in the Battle of Agincourt. In the second volume of my fantasy series, I will be including a series of speeches before major battles throughout the story. I don’t think I could ever top the St. Crispin’s Day Speech, but I will do my best.
