L'histoire de France pour ceux qui n'aiment pas ça
L'histoire de France pour ceux qui n'aiment pas ça
Dufour, Catherine, 1966-2013
The history of France, how boring... is that your opinion? So this book was written for you. Although this history of France, in reality, is a thousand years of action movies. The scene? As big as Europe. The decor? Palaces, gallows, masked balls, butchers and victors of smouldering battlefields. The pitch? Glitzy kings overlap defeats with victories, excorted by bloodthirsty knights, sneaky ministers and demented monks. With, as guest stars, a princess who collects the hearts of her lovers in silver boxes , an old ruler who wins a war by getting the enemy army drunk and a proud warrior boiled in a cauldron like a stew. NB: this book is not the work of an historian, but a lover of history books. It has been checked and approved by a true historian.
