Abstract:

An exhaustively researched, character-driven chronicle of revolutionary terror, its victims, and the young men--energetic, idealistic and sincere--who turned the French Republic into a slaughterhouse. 1792 found the newborn Republic threatened from all sides: the British blockaded the coasts, Continental armies poured over the frontiers, and the provinces verged on open revolt. Paranoia simmering in the capital, the Revolution slipped under control of a powerful clique and its fanatical political organization, the Jacobin Club. For two years, this faction, obsessed with patriotism and purity--and self-appointed to define both--inflicted on their countrymen a reign of terror unsurpassed until Stalin's Russia.--From publisher description.
