As European monarchs threaten war, Jacobin deputies embrace the challenge. A strange alliance is forged between republicans and monarchists as the nation prepares for conflict, while the supporters of a general revolution urge French liberation of the entire continent. Despite the numerous justifications used to pursue revolutionary war, the true motivations of leading actors remains obscure.
