About this Product
After five years of disaster and defeat in North America King George II had found in James Wolfe a general who knew how to fight. The key to victory was the fortress city of Quebec. High above the St Lawrence River it had resisted all attempts to capture it. When the time came, the concluding battle was quick and bloody, full of bravery for both sides: both Wolfe and the French Marquis de Montcalm were seriously wounded. Yet neither had shirked from the responsibilities of the fateful hour: both knew that the events of that September morning in 1759 would decide the fate of Canada.
