It's always a pleasure to read Robert Horvat's take on history, and this time he takes us back to the 15th century with the first part of a profile on French hero Joan of Arc. I don't know nearly as much about Joan as I should, though obviously she's a fascinating figure and one without equal in the Middle Ages. Great job, Robert, and I look forward to the next installment!
