    Synopsis modern Canada was born in the shadows of the men who commanded opposing forces in Abraham Martin s field near Quebec City in 1759.

    This was an incredibly frustrating and a disappointing book It had rambling, awkward sentences and in some areas, poor transitions from Wolfe s point of view from Montcalm s point of view I am not sure how much this is a translation issue, but it made for a difficult read My biggest issue was an utter and complete lack of maps in my ebook version Given that a lot of place names near the Great Lakes and St.Lawrence seaway have changed, except for those in Quebec, I had no context at all for any of the geography Even major rivers names have changed Ohio river was not known as the O...

    For a Canadian, this should be a must read There was a book that I read a few years ago that was very good in detail and describing the battle that had the British and France fighting for a piece of land that would eventually become Canada That book dealt with the actual skirmishes and battle lines that lead to a British victory In the big picture of many fought sea and land wars between those two countries, the terrain of the New World fell short in importance Always open to new material on the history of my home country, I was anxious to give this new release a read.In this rendition of the war that has become known as The Battle of the Plains of Abraham, the author has concentrated his attention on the life s of the two major formidable generals from both sides known as Louis Joseph Montcalm and James Wolfe First, what wonderful insight and writing by Mr C...

    Read the Full Review and More The intense dramatics of the French and Indian War are portrayed in this two part biography of the leading heroes from both sides of the effort, where famed Canadian novelist Roch Carrier focuses on Britain s James Wolfe and France s Louis Joseph Montcalm This is a history that has been told before and should prove easily navigable, as there are so many near misses with death, battles lost to the enemy side and foes vanquished throughout that it s quite astonishing how Carrier s style and voice just do not connect with the work as a whole.The narrative is faithfully chronological from beginning to end, though upon learning about both of these martyrs upbringings in the first chapters, it s clear that there are indeed no notations for sources whether that be in footnotes, endnotes, or even glancing through the end of the book in which it is missing both a Notes section and a Bibliography This could possibly be the publishers fault, as the book is translated for the English audience perhaps the original edition contains relevant source material and has appropriately attempted to verify the research and facts provided The journals that these two distinguished Generals left behind provide fascinating ac...

    Some histories have an obvious agenda They present events to guide readers to adopt a particular interpretation of events Others seem objective or subtle, and appear to rely primarily on source material to pant the narrative This book is in the latter camp It presents the story of the Fall of Quebec by chronologically following the lives of the chief protagonists Montcalm and Wolfe It appears that a large portion of the information was gleaned from personal diaries, journals and regimental histories The author offers few obvious opinions or interpretations as the story is revealed I know this history from childhood elementary school, field trips and a fair amount of reading I grew up in the Province of Quebec and the story looms large in its politics and culture I thought I knew it well, but this careful and detailed retel...

    I can t decide if the ending is melancholy or dismissive, sad or disgusted at the end result of the conquest of Quebec by the English But the rest of the book is the most straightforward account you ll ever find of Montcalm and Wolfe, and how destiny lead thei...
