Joan Of Arc: A History by Helen Castor
From the author of ‘She-Wolves’ comes this account of the life and times of Joan. She was a French peasant girl who became an icon of the Hundred Years war. She heard voices from God, rode to war and was eventually captured and executed. This is an in-depth tale that places Joan’s deeds in the context of the tumultuous wars in France waged by Charles VI, Henry V, Charles VII and Henry VI. Also featured are people who would later on make history of their own. This was very good and engrossing.
