Charlotte,

Being able to stand in the front line, no longer hidden from the enemy by anonymity, is a rather uncommon characteristic of people. Most of us will not ask a question in public for fear of being exposed as uninformed, naive or rude. To actually put one's body in the front of an army, as a recognizable leader, requires unusual bravery, sense of purpose, confidence and a measure of magical thinking and even delusion.

Here the (feminine-figure), shaped armored battle suit and the vulnerable exposed slender young neck, perfectly point us to her identity as the uniquely brave French nationalist warrior woman, Joan of Arc!

The line of (?) barbed wire is a perfect way of putting her at the battle front!

Asher
