By 1429, with French fortunes in the Hundred Years War at their lowest ebb, an English victory seemed inevitable. Northern France including Paris was firmly under English control and the city of Orleans was besieged by an English army. At the darkest hour, a deeply religious peasant girl from Champagne came to the Dauphin, convinced that she had a divine mission to help him defeat the English. Her name was Joan of Arc. In less than four months Joan's inspired leadership helped to break the siege of Orleans. This volume tells the story of a legendary episode in France's history.
