Yet she heard heavenly voices telling her that she alone could save her country in its war with England and restore Charles VII as the king of France. Deeply religious and remarkably courageous, Joan was devoted to her saints, her God, her king, and her people. And so she journeyed across the embattled countryside to fight for the future of France, risking capture and even death. She achieved great military success, both as a leader and as a warrior. Joan was ultimately captured, sold to the enemy, found guilty of heresy, and put to death in 1431.

Joan of Arc: Heavenly Warrior Reviews
Joan of Arc wanted to listen her messengers or angels; but, she also feared what might happen to her and if her parents would approve she could go on this very life changing mission. So she asked the army leader and asked if she could join the army and be a soldier. It took very look until the leader approved. Then Joan of Arc had to face many different and dangerous battles. One almost caused her death, but she was brave enough to continue.
I really enjoyed this! I feel much more educated on the woman you often hear about but don't know much about. Her story was quite interesting and it's fascinating to see someone strive for something and succeed. Even if she was martyred, she still freed France.
This is a great YA book on the story of Joan of Arc, with well-chosen side-notes. (I still can't get over GILLES DE RAIS having a part in the story of Joan of Arc. That's like Penny Dreadful-style plotting!) It's straightforward, with lots of great art.
this is the best biography ever!!! joan of arc is sooooooo cool!!
I am so facinated and in love with Joan of Arc. She rocks!
You will definitely need this book if you want to know really who Joan of Arc is.
Another excellent book on the life and work of Joan of Arc. All that is left to me now is to write my own.
Interesting wee book, enjoyed reading it and finding out more information on Joan.
I really enjoyed reading and learning about this amazing woman that you always hear about but really don't know the history behind her.
