    One thought on “Fouché: The Unprincipled Patriot.”

    1. Excellent biography of one of the least noted figures of the French Revolution and Napoleon's reign. As Minister of Police, he virtually controlled France. He was a genuine republican who strove for peace and stability and therefore often seemed "unprincipled" because he sided with whatever power looked to be the best to bring about the greatest benefit for his country. It also paints a less than salutary portrait of Napoleon, depicting him as paranoid and occasionally indecisive.
