Following. I was looking for such a book one on my library app a while back and didn’t find one to my liking.

re: Recommendations for The French Revolution
It’s not a book, but the Revolutions (mike Duncan) podcast has an awesome series on the French Revolution... it goes from the lead up to the estates general all the way to Waterloo.... he also has smaller series on the revolutions of 1848, Paris commune, etc.

I really liked Jeremy Popkin's A New World Begins: A History of the French Revolution.

re: Recommendations for The French Revolution
Citizens bt simon schama is big but is the go to. Ive read a decent bit of it but it is also on audible. Narrator is a little hard to understand so you cant speed it up too much.

I also did the great course: french revolution which is on audible as well but is more of an overview lecture series

re: Recommendations for The French Revolution
Thanks everyone for the reccs! The Great Courses might be a good place to start, because I’m linear oriented when it comes to timelines. I don’t like jumping around until I know how the story plays out. I think my Western Civ prof glossed over The Terror, but that’s been sometime ago.

Duncan has a biography on Lafayette coming out later this year... should be good.

I saw that and he’s the perfect writer for it. Lafayette is my favorite character in history so I’ll be picking it up for sure
