Zeezok Publishing's Z-Guide to The Three Musketeers is a great way to incorporate media into your study of seventeenth century Europe.
On his first day in Paris the impulsive impetuous D'Artagnan challenges the Three Musketeers to a duel. When Prime Minister Richelieu's men interrupt this private quarrel the country bumpkin from Gascony joins his opponents to send the Prime Minister a message he cannot ignore. D'Artagnan's swordsmanship can foil some of Richelieu's machinations but it cannot stop an impending war with England, a war with tragic consequences for our hero and his fellow musketeers. Its all for one and one for all in this swashbuckling adventure full of romance intrigue and non-stop action.
