Joan of Arc: The Lily of France
Called upon by God to liberate the people of her country, Joan of Arc sets out on her mission to re-conquer France at the age of 17. A peasant girl who knows nothing of war, she reunites a broken French army and leads them to victory against the English, guided only by her celestial voices. A feat so remarkable that she was accused of being a witch, captured by her enemies, and burnt at the stake at 19. The story of the most famous female soldier in history is one of courage, faith and inspiration, and she remains today a figure of legend.
