By Laura Auricchio. ISBN: 978-0-307-26755-9. Copyright 2014. Hardcover with 409 pages including 54 black and white illustrations, notes, bibliography, and index.
The Marquis de Lafayette was a man driven by dreams of glory and felled by tragic, human weaknesses. This new biography looks past the storybook hero and selfless champion of righteous causes who cast aside family and fortune to advance the transcendent aims of liberty and justice. His reputation rose to great heights during the American Revolution but collapsed during the French Revolution and today remains a murky figure in French memory.
