    Joan of Arc (Wishbone Classics #4) by Selene, Patrice; Twain, Mark and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at This book is the first English language book about the retrial of Joan of Arc: and clearly the best, based firmly on the testimonies given at the retrial. Written by renowned French historian, Regine Pernoud, it uses extensive excerpts from people who actually knew Joan, bringing to life this great woman and her powerful story.

      About the Book. Joan has a unique role in Western imagination--she is one of the few true female heroes. Marina Warner uses her superb historical and literary skills to move beyond conventional biography and to capture the essence of Joan of Arc, both as she lived in her own time and as she has "grown" in the human imagination over the five centuries since . Joan of Arc felt a little like two different books with conflicting goals – early chapters strictly about French history and infighting, then chapters about Joan the Maid and her remarkable success, and then returning to French history after Joan's death. Both narratives are exceptionally well written, and although I have very limited knowledge of the subjects, they kept me riveted.

Helen Castor shows how well it can be done.5/5.
