KEYNOTE SPEAKER: KELLY DEVRIES, THE AUTHOR OF "JOAN OF ARC: MILITARY LEADER"

"Had Joan of Arc been just another woman who heard voices, history would likely not know her. She chose to answer her voices by leading a defeated French people to victory over an occupying English force."--Dr. Kelly DeVries, Loyola University Maryland professor, medieval military historian and author

 

 

From Library Journal: "The publication of this immensely readable book...reflects our seemingly endless fascination with the Maid of Orleans. What distinguishes this text from others is its pointed depiction of Joan as a military leader rather than a proto-feminist or saint. A well-known medieval and military historian, DeVries (history, Loyola) argues how curious it is that Joan's career as warrior, soldier, and general has been overlooked. He painstakingly analyzes her impact during the Hundred Years War: her combat strategies and how she overcame the psychology of defeat in the French armies, the influence of her victories in the peace process, and how she destabilized the English military and political leadership. This book should be welcomed by general and academic readers alike.
