Dampierre, Le Temps Des Victoires
In 1792, in a small village in the midst of revolutionary tension, the wars of Vendée are announced. Dampierre Julien, a renowned master of arms, is hired by Forestier as a groom.

While the Revolution triumphs in Paris, Vendée people resist revolutionary ideals that “violate” religious customs and traditions. Dampierre, a young man with extraordinary ambition, attends the infighting between “blues” and “white.” Insensitive to the ideals, insensitive to the feelings, he continues his inexorable rise, not without leaving a few feathers and earning a few scars … Historical accuracy is matched only by exciting narrative. One of the “musts” in the Vécu collection.
