A Woman of the Commune (extra large print)

ByG. A. Henty

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Cuthbert Hartington, a young Londoner, aspires to be an artist. When his father dies, leaving no inheritance, Cuthbert travels to Paris to study under a master painter. While he is there, the Germans attack and lay siege to Paris, and Cuthbert signs up to support France as a soldier. Although wounded in a skirmish, he survives to see France defeated, and forced to pay a huge indemnity to Prussia. This burden, and the humiliation of the defeat, fall heavily on Paris, increasing the discontent of the working classes. They form a socialist faction, the Paris Commune, which revolts against the French government and rules Paris for a brief period. Cuthbert is an eyewitness to the tragedy which follows. (6"x9" extra large print [17 point] hardcover; includes footnotes defining obscure or uncommon words)
