Meet the Author

Joseph Hilaire Pierre René Belloc French: 27 July 1870[1] - 16 July 1953) was an Anglo-French writer and historian who became a naturalised British subject in 1902. He was one of the most prolific writers in England during the early twentieth century. He was known as a writer, orator, poet, satirist, man of letters, and political activist. He is most notable for his Catholic faith, which had a strong impact on most of his works and his writing collaboration with G. K. Chesterton. He was President of the Oxford Union and later MP for Salford from 1906 to 1910. He was a noted disputant, with a number of long-running feuds, but also widely regarded as a humane and sympathetic man.

His most lasting legacy is probably his verse, which encompasses cautionary tales and religious poetry. Among his best-remembered poems are Jim, who ran away from his nurse, and was eaten by a lion and Matilda, who told lies and was burnt to death"'

This book is very informational to anyone seeking to find out more than just the average Joe about the French Revolution. Belloc uses very precise information when talking about the French Revolution from the years 1789-1794. The French Revolution has vivid explanations of what the French people did during this brutal time and also has great maps to display French strategy during the different wars they encountered during the revolution. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking more information about a very disturbing time for the French. This book is captivating and jam packed with knowledge of the French Revolution.
