Harrowing but interesting,

This review is from: Five Years of My Life, 1894-1899 (Classic Reprint) (Paperback)
This is a contemporary account of the life of Alfred Dreyfus whiles incarcerated on Devil's Island and the end on the 19th century. It is harrowing, and very repetitive, which exactly characterises his life - harrowing and repetitive. I read this after reading Robert Harris's 'A Soldier and a Spy' so I knew the story. However reading this account from Dreyfus's point of view it is clear how little he knew about the efforts being made to release him. His life therefore must have been almost intolerable. He was clearly a man of great character and emotional strength.
