French Wars – Paul Lamont's father fought in the French Wars before the family immigrated to America (his father was a saboteur and specialized in explosives for the Social Reform Army). (May be related to the Urban Wars.)
The Social Reform Army overthrew the French government forty years prior to 2058 (c. 2018). Within six months of the coup, the SRA had been dispatched. Lamont said that during his father's time, his country had been seized by "exploitive bureaucrats." The second revolution in France was necessary to give its people back the power and justice that are their right.
