Around 1412, a baby girl was born in the village of Domremy who would change France forever. A farmer's daughter, she seemed destined for an unremarkable life. But as the dramatic narrative of this "World History Biography" reveals, Joan's life was anything but ordinary. By the age of 13, she knew her destiny--to drive the English invaders from France. By 17, she had led an army to victory at Orleans. Captured in battle, and too poor to be ransomed, Joan was burned at the stake before her 20th birthday.Wilkinson, Philip is the author of 'Joan of Arc The Teenager Who Saved Her Nation', published 2007 under ISBN 9781426301179 and ISBN 1426301170.
