Joan of ARC: Warrior Saint of France

by Paul B. Thompson

Hardcover(Library Binding)



Warrior saint Joan of Arc was able to save her native France during the Hundred Years War. Born to a poor family, Joan of Arc claimed that saints commanded her to save France and restore the rightful king to his throne. Through her spiritual and military leadership and tireless determination, she made sure Charles VII was crowned king at Reims, France. She became a hero to the common people, but the king's advisors did not trust her leadership. Captured and imprisoned by the English, Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. However, her name and message would live forever. Follow Paul B. Thompson as he takes the reader through her amazing journey from poor peasant girl to sainthood.
