Description

That extraordinary period - in many ways the precursor of Stalin's Great Terror of the 1930s - is recreated here by Graeme Fife, who uses contemporary documents, eye-witness accounts, and reports from the dreaded Committee of Public Safety, to show the atmosphere of fear, suspicion and betrayal that gripped France. But amidst the horror there was also great heroism and pathos - the author includes heartbreaking letters written by those awaiting execution.

Author Biography

Graeme Fife is the author of numerous plays, documentaries and features for BBC Radio - including a play based on letters written by victims of the Terror. His books include Arthur the King and Tour de France - he is fluent in French, and divides his time between France and his home near Sevenoaks, Kent.
