My title speaks not merely of war, but also of the crumbling of a regime and the end of a world. mile Zola The penultimate novel of the Rougon-Macquart cycle, La Dbcle 1892 takes as its subject the dramatic events of the Franco-Prussian War and the Commune of 1870-1. During Zolas lifetime it was the bestselling of all his novels, praised by contemporaries for its epic sweep as well as for its attention to historical detail. La Dbcle seeks to explain why the Second Empire ended in a crushing military defeat and revolutionary violence. It focuses on ordinary soldiers, showing their bravery and suffering in the midst of circumstances they cannot control, and includes some of the most powerful descriptions Zola ever wrote. Zola skilfully integrates his narrative of events and the fictional lives of his characters to provide the finest account of this tragic chapter in the history of France. Often compared to War and Peace, La Dbcle has been described as a seminal work for all modern depictions of war.
