Title: Joan of Arc
Author: Hilaire Belloc
One of the most artful narratives ever written concerning the life of The Maid. Hilaire Belloc wrote with a familiarity only possessed by those with an intimate knowledge of the facts. A Catholic, of both French and English descent, Belloc clearly had an emotional affinity for this episode in the long struggle between the two nations.
