KIRKUS REVIEW

The adventurous, tragic and saintly life of Joan of Arc is told in a clear, direct and absorbing manner here. Dramatic episodes and fictionalized conversations faithful to the facts are used to reveal character and the course of events in the context of which Joan's destiny was worked out. The complicated historical background of French-English relations to is handled simply and informatively. It how any teen ager could fail to be inspired by Joan of Arc's mission, military and political exploits, trial, execution and personal sanctity or impressed by her ultimate vindication contained in the eventual invalidation of her trial.
