The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo -

My copy: ibsn The Black Count  Glory, Revolution, Betrayal and the Real Count of Monte Cristo9780099575139

An interesting account of the French Revolution and General Dumas life. 

My main complaint is that except for few maps there are no images, photographies or illustrations. I would've loved if the book had a picture of the sculpture of 3 Dumas (Dumas the general, Dumas the novelist and Dumas the playwright) by Alfred de Moncel. (In 1942 the Nazi melted it along with hundreds other of French statues.) 

The author was able to find & read letters by Dumas and I would have appreciated if at least one was photocopied and included, it would've been interesting to see the man's handwriting.

But as I said, nothing. 

Very disappointing. Even the man on the book's cover isn't General Dumas but his son "dressed up as his father, in full military uniform on a rearing horse."
