2.0 out of 5 stars Correction to synopsis, 11 Jan 2004
Having read several books on the French Revolution as well as two on Danton, I would like to correct your synopsis: Danton was not a "paid agent" for the Royalists and his death came in 1794 and not 1795, as is written in your synopsis. Indeed, his is a tragic hero's story, a man who certainly profited from the Revolution financially, but only strived to moderate the Terror before being killed -- and correctly predicting the downfall of his executioners (Robespierre and Saint-Just), and the Revolution itself.
