Product Overview

Year 1428: The war between England and France has been raging for nearly one hundred years. The English control territory to the north of the Loire, but have no control of regions beyond the river. During the summer, Bedford decides to eliminate his enemy and besieges Orle''ans. From October 1428 to May 1429, fierce fighting continues around the town.

The situation seems to be lost for the besieged, until the arrival of a young peasant girl named Joan. The exploits of the Maid of Orle''ans lead to the making of her legend. Inspired by her, the French rekindle their taste for victory and go from one success to another, until the decisive battle at Patay. This is an detailed, animated and richly illustrated book which enables the reader to relive these moments of great endeavor.
