About The Siècle History Podcast

The Siècle stands as a multimedia endeavor committed to narrating France's historical narrative from 1814 to 1914. Crafted and brought to life by David H. Montgomery, this century encapsulates a period marked by both upheaval and inertia. It encompasses revolutions and the rise of industry, affluence contrasting with destitution, as well as the dynamics of colonial expansion juxtaposed with instances of degradation.
