What You'll Learn:

This book won author Tom Reiss a Pulitzer and floored audiences when he gained access to never-before-seen documents showing the extent to which Alexandre Dumas’ famous stories, from The Three Musketeers to The Count of Monte Cristo, are based on the life of his father: a slave who inherited the title of Count from his aristocrat father, trained to fight under the best swordsman in Europe, launched successful military campaigns across across several continents, and was unjustly imprisoned.
