Its members were chiefly drawn from the Jacobins and it contained some of the ablest men in France, dominated at first by Danton and then by Robespierre. It successfully defeated France's external enemies but was largely responsible for the Reign of Terror, and its ruthless methods, at a time of growing economic distress, led to increasing opposition. In March 1794 an attempt to overthrow it, led by Hébert, was quashed, but four months later the reaction which overthrew Robespierre marked the end of the Committee's power. It was restricted to foreign affairs until its influence was finally ended in October 1795.rnLazare Nicolas Marguerite, Count Carnot was a French statesman, general, military engineer, and administrator in successive governments of the French Revolution. As a leading member of the Committee for General Defense, the Committee of Public Safety and of the Directory, he helped mobilize the Revolutionary armed forces and matériel.rnClaude-Antoine Prieur-Duvernoi was a French military engineer and member of the Committee of Public Safety. He organized the manufacture and requisitioning of the weapons and munitions that were needed by the French for war with the European powers. (Image)
