 Holy War in Henry Fifth
Henry IV feigns loyalty to the king he deposes and then solicitude for the one he executes, and he triumphs over his enemies in battle not by valour but with the stratagem of dressing many in the king's coats.
The elder Henry plans a holy war against the Turks as a means to quell civil war at home and to ease his conscience for usurping the throne, and his dying words include the advice to his son to 'busy giddy minds with foreign quarrels' to solidify his shaky regime (II Henry IV 4.5.213-14).
This explains Henry's manipulation of religion as the outcome of '"a passage from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and the modern world,"...the familiar story of disenchantment in which religious attitudes toward history and politics give way to secular and humanistic attitudes...a fall from sacramental kingship to a Machiavellian conception of kingship...'.

 Henry V
Henry was haunted I felt, not just by his father and their troubled relationship but also by the ghost of Richard II whom he invokes at the end of his famous "Upon the King" soliloquy.
Moreover, to portray Henry as the dupe of two scheming prelates, or as a crafty politician skillfully concealing his aims with the aid of an unscrupulous archbishop, is not consistent with claiming at the same time that he is the ideal king; indeed it is destructive of the moral epic purpose of the play.
Henry is an appointed symbol of majesty, and the action of the play is directed with the most elaborate care to show him doing everything that the age expected of the perfect king.

 Introduction to Shakespeare's Henry V
Henry's response--that war is God's way of punishing people for their bad deeds and that, therefore, the deaths in war are the responsibility of those whom war kills--is notoriously illogical (and the play later confirms this by killing the boys, the young lads who have not had time to commit all the sins Henry lists).
Henry can simultaneously repeatedly indicate the extreme violence which will occur to the citizens if his soldiers take the town and disclaim his own involvement in the process ("What is't to me, when you yourselves are cause" and so on).
For if Henry is, as the play clearly shows us, the most successful modern politician, and if his achievements come at a huge personal cost and are very short-lived, then success in politics would seem to be a problematic undertaking, carrying a huge personal cost (to the effective ruler) and no guarantee of lasting stability.

Henry is genuinely pious, but you catch the desperation in his prayer before the battle, when he begs God "not today, oh, not today" [remember how his father came to power by murdering Richard II].
I particularly like the scene after the battle, when Henry carries a dead boy off the field, through the scene of carnage where the muddy puddles are red with blood, passing a group of three French princes, one dead, kneeling in a way that refers to a pieta.
