Easy to understand

Very easy to understand but a little tense. Tension and tragedy of a thriller period described in a non-thriller way. Gives ample factual knowledge about the French nation of the period. A complicated history made simple.

Hats Off

Firstly, this man is an outstanding writer - the information flows of the page. Unlike some older publications, he doesn't ramble or get bogged down in obscure details. I had bought a book on French Revolution before but didn't finish it as it was too dull.

Great Infomative Book

This is the first book I have ever encountered on the French Revolution and Bonaparte and it was a compelling and frank narrative. The author carefully does not go into infinite.
