Praise For Lafayette

A compelling story. . . . Saint Bris’s latest biography details
French aristocrat Lafayette pivotal roles in the American
and French revolutions.

In his new book, Saint Bris shows us the Lafayette who was much more than a rich young Frenchman dabbling in a foreign war. . . . He gives us the man who used the lessons of the American Revolution to help France through her long journey to nationhood.

A masterpiece of storytelling. Lafayette was a man ahead
of his time.
