"The story of one of the most remarkable women of the medieval world, as you have never read it before. In Joan of Arc: a history, Helen Castor tells this gripping story afresh: forwards, not backwards. Instead of an icon, she gives us a living, breathing woman confronting the challenges of faith and doubt, a roaring girl who, in fighting the English, was also taking sides in a bloody civil war. We meet this extraordinary girl amid the tumultuous events of her extraordinary world where no one--not Joan herself, nor the people around her, princes, bishops, soldiers or peasants--knew what would happen next"--Provided by publisher.

Introduction: "Joan of Arc"
Prologue: The field of blood
Part One. Before
This war, accursed of God
Like another Messiah
Desolate and divided
Part Two. Joan
The maid
Like an angel fromGod
A heart greater than any man's
A creature in the form of a woman
I will be with you soon
A simple maid
Fear of the fire
Part Three. After
Those who called themselves Frenchmen
She was all innocence
Epilogue: "Saint Joan".
