The Man on Devil’s Island by Ruth Harris

Devils

I’ve been reading a lot about French history recently. And one of the things that kept cropping up in the background was Dreyfus. I knew a little about it from my university course but not much detail. This book details not just the trials and the issues around Dreyfus the man but also all the other people connected to the controversy. Lots of people got involved at some stage or another on both sides of the debate – it really did tear French society apart for years and the aftermath lingered for a long time. A very thorough overview of the whole affair.
