Marc Bloch

Marc Bloch (1886-1944) was a historian of medieval France in the period between the First and Second World Wars. Bloch founded with Lucien Febvre[?] the important journal Annales d'histoire économique et sociale (now called Annales. Économies, Sociétés, Civilisations) whose name came to be attached to an historical approach called the Annales School. Bloch's own most important work centered on the study of feudalism.

Bloch was shot by the Gestapo during the Occupation of France for his work in the resistance.
