   schema:reviewBody ""This new book by a leading historian of the French Revolution, based on the latest historical research, offers a different view of the Terror. Events were not the result of wickedness, but of dreadful decisions taken by men convinced that they fought for freedom. The descent into terror was not brought about by ruthless leaders striking out at helpless victims, but by men who feared their own immolation, driven to paranoid denunciations by the real threat of aristocratic vengeance." "As Andress shows so convincingly, the Terror was not a stage melodrama of good and evil, but a savage civil war. On every side there were innocents and profiteers, and also those, who acted courageously, doing their duty as patriots or loyal subjects. It is through their inability to see the complexities of the conflict that was unfolding that the true tragedy of the Terror is revealed, as earnest patriotism became the rationale for slaughter."--Jacket." ;
