Catriona's War - Jean Grainger - A Short Summary and Review

The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal and The Real Count of Monte Cristo - Tom Reiss - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Black Count:

The heroic life of General Alexandre Dumas, the original Count of Monte Cristo.

My favorite Tom Reiss Quote from the book:

"To remember a person is the most important thing."


Questions I pondered while reading the book:

How do people like this get omitted from the history books?

Was it possible to survive the French Revolution as a government employee?

My review of the book The Black Count:


Now we know who inspired the character Dartagan.

History is written by political survivors.

Shame on Napoleon.
