Description

The In World History series is a unique combination of history and biography. Each title in the series describes an important and interesting historical event or period in dramatic detail. At the same time, each book highlights one person who is representative of that event or period and presents his or her life, demonstrating how that person's involvement influenced both the way the event unfolded and the course of the history of the world. Each volume includes a timeline, chapter notes, a further reading list with Internet addresses, and an index.Author William W. Lace examines the Hundred Years' War concentrating on the efforts of Joan of Arc, a young peasant girl who fought valiantly to drive the English from French soil. Joan's religious visions at the age of thirteen led her to devote her short life to France and the man who she would help become King Charles VII. Joan eventually was declared a saint by the Roman Catholic Church and left behind a legacy that is still seen today.show more
