Summary A retelling of epochal events, dramatizing the French Revolution's most momentous days, from the storming of the Bastille to Napoleon's coup. Brings to life the short-sighted King Louis XVI and his extravagant Marie Antoinette; the ugly but compelling Count Mirabeau; Mme. Roland and her radical salon; the Jacobins; Danton, Marat, and Robespierre; and many others. Hibbert's anecdotes, quotes from witnesses, and flair for interesting detail catch up the reader in the unfolding drama.--From publisher description.
