"To storm and take Quebec (William Pitt) chose thirty-two year old James Wolfe, the soldier so much admired by Nelson. On ly a few month earlier Wolfe had become secretly engaged, but as a professional soldier he embarked for North America with the utmost enthusiasm. His task was not made easier by the facts that he was opposed by the Marquis de Montcalm, outst a n d i n g for his courage and chivalry; the French had recently been reinforced and were making skilful use of savage Red Indian auxiliaries; and Wolfe's three brigadiers were highly critical and jealous of his promotion over their heads. Finall y, t he a pp ro a ch up the St. Lawrence was extraordinarily difficult owing to its complex shoals. On the other hand, Wolfe had been chosen for his superb handling of men; his expedition included one of the great navigators of history, James Coo ke; an d h elp fr om Ad miral Saunders proved a landmark in the development of combined operations. The advantages were therefore more or less equally divided between the opposing armies. With absorbing skill (the author) recounts the fluctuatio ns o f th e ac tion whi ch led to Wolfe's brilliant victory, death and apotheosis. To follow each stage of the engagement through the accounts of the men who were there - and through the remarkable illustrations collected in this book - is to exp erien ce pe rsona lly o ne of th e th ree great victories of the 'annus mirabilis'."
