Summary: Joan of Arc''s life is an exciting and intriguing tale of a girl who heard voices telling her to save France and obeyed them. Following the orders of these voices, she persuaded the crown prince of France to let her lead an army to free the city of Orleans from the English. Immensely successful in that campaign, she and her army fought their way to Rheims, where the crown prince was named king of France. Her real heroism, however, manifested itself in a courtroom where she battled the prejudices of the men who ultimately had her burned at the stake as a heretic. In 1920, 400 years after her execution, the Roman Catholic Church recognized her as a saint. Centuries after her death, the girl who changed the course of the Hundred Years'' War continues to fascinate and inspire. Read about her amazing life in Joan of Arc: Religious and Military Leader, featuring full-color and black-and-white images, engaging sidebars, suggestions for further reading, and a handy index for researchers.
