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. She even returned the throne to Charles VII, but it all went horribly wrong when she was finally captured, tried for witchcraft and heresy, and burned at the stake.Grade level: 9+. 45 minutes.
