A “well-written, lucid, and vivid” recounting of the battles, beheadings, and other dramatic events that changed modern history (The Washington Post).   Works from Les Miserables by Victor Hugo to Citizens by Simon Schama have been inspired by the French Revolution. The Days of the French Revolution brings to life the events that changed the future of Western civilization.   As compelling as any fiction thriller, this real-life drama moves from the storming of the Bastille to the doomed court of Louis XVI, the salon of Madame Roland, and even the boudoir of Marie Antoinette. Christopher Hibbert, author of The House of Medici and other histories and biographies, recounts the events that swirled around Napoleon, Mirabeau, Danton, Marat, and Robespierre with eyewitness accounts and his “usual grace and flair for divulging interesting detail” (Booklist).   “A remarkably good writer.” —The New York Times  Includes illustrations
