    A biography of a remarkable man of his time and a straight to the heart history of the birth of french democracy it could also be viewed as a treatise on the fragility of freedom and a cautionary tale of trusts betrayed.

    Born to a fallen aristocrat and a slave in what is now haiti, general dumas lived in a time of equality and meritocracy before bonaparte returned france to a racist state.

    The three musketeers was one of my favorite books of all time, and i like history, so this biography of the author's father was a must-read for me.
