Abstract:

"Joan of Arc was fourteen when she first heard the voices. She was seventeen when she took command of the armies of France -- a peasant girl in the early fifteenth century in charge of a nation's forces. At nineteen she was captured by the British and tried as a witch by a church court. Before her twentieth birthday she was burned at the stake. In 1920 she was canonized a saint." "Vita Sackville-West fervently tells the story of one of history's most legendary women. Relying on the detailed records from her trial, Sackville-West reconstructs the scenes of the story: the slow growth of Joan's convictions, the great victories, and the pathos of her death.
