BESIEGED IN PARIS An Englishman's Account of the Franco-German War, 1870-1871


by Ashley Lawrence, FRPSL


The book describes life in Paris during the seven month siege, and the observations of William Brown and his letters to & from his wife



Ashley Lawrence has researched a remarkable series of letters from an astute observer of the siege of Paris, the climax of the Franco-German War.



In spite of the siege, during the five month period from September 1870 to January 1871, William Brown succeeded in corresponding with his wife in England and she managed to communicate with him, using whatever postal and clandestine means were available. The characters, events and aspects of life in Paris during those terrible months are described in great detail.
