    the storming of the Bastille

    The early period of the French Revolution, marked by the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the storming of the Bastille to release political offenders, evoked enthusiastic support from English liberals and radicals alike.

    Re: the storming of the Bastille

    Which word is giving you trouble? Do you know what the Bastille is? Do you know what the dictionary gives as a definition of "storm" as a verb?

    Re: the storming of the Bastille

    I found the answer of my question. I think "storm" here means attacking.
    Done.

    sb70012, this is turning into a habit which I, personally, don't like. I think it's the third or fourth time that the same has happened to you: you post a question and, some time later, tell us you already found the answer. This is likely to discourage people from even looking at your questions, however interesting they may be. Please consider revising your sources/dictionaries again before posting.
