The French masses could not be expected to foresee that the émigrés’ money would run out, as it did all too soon, or to consider that, while officers are important in war, so also are large number of ordinary soldiers, which the émigré ‘army’ lacked. It is difficult, after the twenty-three years of war which in fact ravaged Europe, to recognise the mood of optimism with which each group embraced the idea of a short and victorious war. Foreign rulers envisaged a police action against a chaotic and uncontrolled rabble; the various groups within France expected to achieve their ends simply and rapidly.

These needs were predominantly economic: the high levels of taxation and feudal obligation made even more acute the problems of peasants farming in old-fashioned and inefficient ways; in 28 THE FRENCH REVOLUTION the towns, restrictive practices and heavy tolls reduced opportunities for enterprise; professions were restricted by all kinds of venality and by the expense of acquiring an education; the Church’s wealth was concentrated at the top, with many of the lower clergy being scarcely able to support themselves, let alone provide welfare for their poorer parishioners.
