In this biography of Joan of Arc, the author portrays her as a self-confident, charismatic and supremely determined figure whose sheer force of will electrified those around her and struck terror into the hearts of the English soldiers and leaders. Subtitled, The Life & Death Of Joan Of Arc. France's heroine and England's scourge, lunatic, witch, religious icon, soldier and leader - there are many ways to describe Joan of Arc, but with so many legends and stories surrounding her, the truth of who she really was has been forgotten: a teenage peasant girl who claimed she heard voices and led an army into battle, changing the course of European history.
