The man doesn't even know the grounds for which Jeanne D'arc was put to death. His research is highly suspect, considering he gets very basic facts on very famous figures very fundamentally wrong. The book from beginning to end is filled with these errors, this was just the most glaring example that even a layman might spot.
Wouldn't recommend to anyone with an interest in history in general or the history of women in particular.

Huh? I read two pages in preview about Mary READ (ever check your facts David?) & found NOTHING to be true, including the timeline, the spelling & the name of the Calico Jack (it is not author KETCHUMt). This is a hack job if two pages are any indication.
