Joan the Woman 1916
While fighting in France during World War I, an English soldier dreams of Joan of Arc, who tells him to die for France to atone for English sins against her. Then, he sees her become the leader of Charles VII's forces against the British, and capture Orleans from the enemy, thereby granting Charles his greatest victory. Shortly thereafter, however, Joan is betrayed by Eric Trent, her British lover, and she is captured, tried and burned at the stake. Inspired by this vision of Joan, the soldier, when he wakes up, sacrifices himself in a daring nighttime raid of German trenches.
