Synopsis: Mystic, maiden, martyr, it is difficult to dispute that Joan of Arc led a remarkably accomplished life for a peasant girl who never went to school... and never saw her 20th birthday. At 17, she delivered an extraordinary message to her Daughin and, two months later, led her army to victory over the English at Orleans. At 18, she was captured and sold to her most hated enemies. At 19, she was declared a witch and burned at the stake. Twenty-five later, she was pronounced innocent. In 1920, she was canonized a saint, cemented into icon status, assured to be a subject of passioante debate forever. It all began in 1492, when a teenage girl from a remote village in France stood before the world and announced she would defeat the world's greatest army and liberate her country. As this small voice in the heart of a simple girl grew stronger, rulers were drawn to listen, armies were empowered to fight and her countrymen were inspired to believe.
