    Book details

The fall of Quebec in 1759 to British forces led by James Wolfe has been called the single most important event in the history of Canada. The drama and mythology surrounding the battle on the Plains of ­:Abraham have ­:diverted ­:attention from ­:questions the historian must ask. Who made the plans? Why did they succeed or fail? Was Montcalm a bad commander or an unlucky one? C.P. :Stacey re-examines myths and misconceptions in the best book on the battle of Quebec. The dramatic battle on the Plains of Abraham which secured final victory for Major General James Wolfe not only set the course for the future of Canada –: it opened the door to the independence of the thirteen American colonies some twenty years later. This book was first published for the 200th anniversary of the battle, in 1959, and is still regarded as the best detailed account of the siege and the battle. This edition contains the entire original text, and editor Donald E. Graves has added picture essays, maps, appendices containing important new information, and updated references and bibliography, making this the most complete, attractive and authoritative book available on the military operation that changed the course of history.
