Since her death at the age of nineteen in 1431, Joan of Arc has maintained a remarkable hold on our collective imagination. She was a teenager of astonishing common sense and a national heroine who led men into battle as a courageous warrior. Yet she was also abandoned by the king whose coronation she secured, betrayed by her countrymen, and sold to the enemy. In this meticulously researched landmark biography, Donald Spoto captures her astonishing life and the times in which she lived. Neither wife nor nun, queen nor noblewoman, philosopher nor stateswoman, Joan of Arc demonstrates that everyone who follows their heart has the power to change history.

    This five-program series pays tribute to history's most charismatic women warriors. These action-packed episodes shot on location in France, Ireland, Britain, China, and North America will combine a heady mix of historical sleuthing and provocative reconstruction. Each episode of Warrior Women investigates the intimate, gritty details of the life and times of these great true-life women warriors, and celebrates the popular mythology that surrounds them. Convinced by the voices of saints to step forth and serve her deposed king, Joan of Arc became an unlikely war hero. With 10,000 beaten men and very long odds against the advancing English army, she scored a miraculous string of victories over the rather surprised English battalions by leading the charge into their front lines.
