In 1415 King Henry V of England invaded France and won an overwhelming victory at the Battle of Agincourt. Following his victory, the English conquered a large part of northern France, and by 1429 were besieging the city of Orleans. In this darkest ...
hour, France's fortunes were transformed by the inspirational leadership of a young woman, Jeanne d'Arc. Within four months the French had broken the siege and won a great victory at the battle of Patay over the previously invincible English. This book examines the crucial campaign that marked the turning point of the Hundred Years War, and that began the legend of Joan of Arc.
