L'histoire de France vue d'ailleurs

 

L'histoire de France vue d'ailleurs, Books magazine, no 34, juillet-août 2012
Une histoire des grands hommes : Charlemagne, Louis IX, Jeanne d'Arc, Robespierre, les deux Napoléon, la légion. Avec qq exceptions : les sorcières, le village des cannibales... La tonalité est à dominante conservatrice. Les tiroirs sont parfois surprenants : garçonne pour Jeanne d'Arc, folie pour la Révolution, sainte famille pour le couple Thorez...
Les articles anglais qui servent de source sont généralement en ligne, mais l'accès en est payant.
