. 1st ed., 1913. Xi + 325 pp., frontis-photogravure, guarded, + 8 plates + 1 fldg., map. Maroon cloth; gilt border to front; t.e.g., bookplate; 22 x 14cm. V.G.+. In 1793, with France torn asunder internally by 'the Terror', royalist counter-revolutions in the Vendee and Toulon threatened to extinguish the republican government but in time the uprising in the Vendee was crushed with extreme brutality. This is a detailed month-by-month account of the fighting at La Vendee in France in 1793. The narrative gives an interesting insight into Napoleon's Grande Armee as it draws out the antagonism between Royalists and Republicans.
