Paris Commune

May 21 is the date associated with the beginning of the end for the Paris Commune. I don't want to get all political on you but I would have thought this subject would be ideal for an epic movie or miniseries. I'd watch it anyway. The whole siege of Paris and subsequent aftermath is a tale that is almost hard to believe these days.

  1. There is that strange Peter Watkins film.....,_1871%29

    NETFLIX has it but it's a "what if" there was television during the 1870s and how the Commune would be covered. Watkins did that for the Battle of Culloden as well.

    My blog has a few entries showing cantinieres during the Commune. I might post some pictures of female units that were supposed to there as well.
