Bastion 66, Siege of Paris, 1870-1871. Artist: Paul Roux

Bastion 66, Siege of Paris, 1870-1871. After the disastrous defeat of the French at Sedan and the capture of Napoleon III, the Prussians surrounded Paris on 9 September 1870. The French commander, General Trochu, initially opted to rely on a static defence based on the city's fortifications rather than trying to break through the Prussian encirclement. The Prussians, meanwhile, had no intention of invading the city, relying on a blockade to compel its capitulation. Eventually the French made several attempts to break out, but all were unsuccessful. The city held out despite famine and great hardship until a bombardment with heavy siege guns led to its surrender on 28 January 1871. From a private collection

Uprising leading to the establishment of the Paris Commune, 1871. Artist: Anon

Uprising leading to the establishment of the Paris Commune, 1871. The Paris Commune was established when the citizens of Paris, many of them armed National Guards, rebelled against the policies of the conservative government formed after the end of the Franco-Prussian War. The uprising was sparked by the government's attempt to take possession of the National Guard's cannons. The regular army and the government were forced to withdraw from the city to Versailles. The left-wing regime of the Commune held sway in Paris for two months until government troops retook the city in bloody fighting in May 1871. From a private collection

Cartoon dedicated to the National Guard, Paris Commune, 1871. Artist: Anon

Cartoon dedicated to the National Guard, Paris Commune, 1871. The Paris Commune was established when the citizens of Paris, many of them armed members of the National Guard formed to defend Paris during the siege by the Prussians, rebelled against the policies of the conservative government formed after the end of the Franco-Prussian War. The left-wing regime of the Commune held sway in Paris for two months until government troops retook the city in bloody fighting in May 1871. The events of the Commune were an inspiration to Karl Marx as well as later communist leaders including Lenin, Trotsky and Mao. From a private collection
