Medieval Rouen

Joan of Arc

One of the more stupid Allied moves in WWII was too readily assuming the Germans were comic-book villains, leading to the disastrous attack on Monte Cassion, which the Germans were not using as an observation post, and bombing Normandy to take out the German headquarters that weren't locate in the cities. The original church of St. Joan of Arc was destroyed. Some of the ruins are preserved and a new church was built on the site.
Joan of Arc was essentially assassinated by an English court convicting her of trumped up heresy charges.
