The Siege of
Orleans was part of the
Hundred Years' War. In fact, historians view it as the
turning point of the war.
The English besieged the French city of Orleans.
Joan of Arc was
the unifying and motivating factor in the French camp. She
succeeded, the English packed their bags, and the French went on to
win the war.
Around 300 English soldiers lost their
lives and 200 English soldiers were made prisoners.
