It's hard to imagine that this is one of Mark Twain's novels, because it's so unprejudiced. I learned a lot about French history, through the eyes of the French, for exampale, that King Henry V of England was a slaughterer, not a glorious king. While I was reading the book, I wondered why God saved the French at that point in history. In my estimation, they didn't deserve Joan of Arc. They ended up selling her to the English. I didn't read the last chapter, because I didn't want to read the details of her horrible death at the stake.
