"(This book) is no scholarly history. Rather, it is a re-creation of t he battle and of the long siege that preceded it...Lapierre conjures up the rain, the deafening noise of bombs falling on Quebec, the petty squabbles that threatened the military strategies of both sides, and adds his own commentary on event s .
