Death of a Revolution - Episode 4


The French Revolution against an oppressive monarchy moves to remove all traces of the old regime.

What began as a struggle for Liberty, Equality, Fraternity has exiled or imprisoned early supporters such as George Washington's General Lafayette and American Activist Tom Paine.

The Reign of Terror is at its height. The Radical Government of France has just executed both the left and right wings of the Revolution.

A new threat comes from the Center, led by George Danton, who advocates tolerance and moderation, as a way to transition from the Revolution and build a Republic.

Danton created the Terror. In the name of national unity, his followers murdered thousands of royalists. Depressed by the bloodshed, Danton turns against his Monster. Yet...

Extremist leaders backed by a radicalized population demand the elimination of all real and imagined "Enemies of the People".

At any cost.
