Don Eveland, October 28, 2011 (view all comments by Don Eveland)
The Terrible Year is also known as The Fall of Paris, one of Horne's trilogy about the 3 wars from 1870 to 1945. It brought to light the Seige, and the Commune, two periods of time closely connected to the growth of Prussia. The Seige section was very good as to the amount of information and description of the surrounding of Paris by the Prussians and the capitulation by Paris which created the vacuum by which the Commune came about. Horne used many "vignettes" to describe life during the Seige, as well as the Commune. I think it taught the lesson of how anarchy is not a way to civilization. The description of the "burning of Paris" was disheartening. To see Paris now and compare it with its history. I highly recommend this book for folks interested in history as well as learning about Paris.
