Return to the tumultuous days of the French Revolution with this captivating tale of adventure and courage. Join Harry and his noble friends as they're swept from their country estate to the riotous streets of Paris. Can Harry rescue the aristocrats from imprisonment and death at the hands of the mob?   By far my favorite is A Place of Greater Safety by Hilary Mantel.

Its achievements and triumphs—like its deceptions and atrocities—were of a scale that has made its stature unique. Never before had the people of a large, populous country sought to fundamentally remake their society on the basis of the principles of liberty and equality.

Living the French Revolution and the Age of Napoleon is your opportunity to learn the full story of this captivating period. Taught by Dr. Suzanne M. Desan, these 48 exciting lectures give you a broad and comprehensive survey of one of the most important eras in modern history.   What we don’t know about the French Revolution could fill a book; Davidson (Voltaire: A Life, , etc.) has done just that—in the s, Louis XVI was running out of funds. His usual sources turned him down so he called the Estates General for the first time in nearly years.
