A Message from H-France:
The tragic news from France this week of the vicious attack on Charlie Hebdo struck all of us at H-France with profound sadness. We stand in solidarity with the spirit of free expression and morn those whose lives have been tragically cut short.
For the H-France Editorial Board,

We have a new Fiction and Film for French Historians as well. FFFH's "Holiday Special" features reviews on books covering the Occupation and the Napoleonic era. Meanwhile, the latest H-France Forum features four essays on Marisa Linton's Choosing Terror. Virtue, Friendship, and Authenticity in the French Revolution. As always, the forum concludes with a response from the author.
