More > vicomté en Berry, vit fastueusement à la veille de la Révolution. Devenu chef de bataillon puis chef de division de la Garde nationale parisienne, il tente de défendre Louis XVI et une monarchie constitutionnelle, mais ne peut empêcher la chute du roi.

Cette vie fragmentée par une époque chaotique nous entraîne dans des méandres inattendus. Cette histoire vraie repose sur des sources originales qui sont soigneusement répertoriées.< Less

It is clear enough that the Renaissance emancipated the human intellect from the trammels of a bastard mediaevalism, that the Reformation consolidated the victory of the "new learning" by including theology among the subjects of human debate. But the French Revolution seems to defy complete analysis. Its complexity was great, its contradictions numerous and astounding.< Less
