Joan of Arc by Timothy Wilson-Smith

Joan of Arc was put on trial for heresy and, on 30 May 1431, burned at the stake. This book is an account of her life that was cut short; its focus is also on her history, which in 1431 had just begun, and which, it shows, was influenced just as much by the transformation in Anglo-French relations and by internal politics.
