Definitely entertaining, but certainly not true to history. I understand taking "poetic" license, and embellishing a mix of fiction based on fact, but they really stretched for this one. This is the kind of production that spurs me into deeper research and finding the truth of the story. I found the use of the National Emblem March in episode 8's military parade to be amusing. I hardly think and French would use a march composed by the US Air Force for the United States in their parades. Somebody didn't do their homework, but then, who knows. Nonetheless, it is entertaining and the costumes are excellent.
