Happy Bastille Day, Everyone!
If you want a gritty, exciting play-by-play of the storming of the Bastille, read Christopher Hibbert's THE DAYS OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION. I read this with my mom on my first trip to Paris, and I will never forget the imagery. Human nature doesn't change over the centuries, and when you read about the brutality involved, it's hard to feel this historical event had much glory. Still, it's fascinating reading.
