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 readIn 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 Carrier who is a uebecois As he mentions in his acknowledgments he was a little biased in his believe of the 1759 history but as he researched for his book he mentions that he became respectful of the two combatants and it showed in his finished work I found that the book had a great pace without the dryness that you may find in non fiction history As mentioned this novel features the two generals of the time from their upbringing to their ultimate demise A very well done time capsule of an important event that changed the landscape of this great land Strongly recommend

Tle told through the lives of the two generals Wolfe and Montcalm The book is a dual biography of the men and their most famous battle written by a master storyteller What kind of life did they have before they took up arms What were the two men really like And most importantly what forces brought the two men to face each other in a battle that forged a nation. The topic and the history that the book covers is excellent The problem and I am not alone in this sentiment was the writing It was choppy and at times disjointed However anyone that wants an overview of the end of New France this is a good start

Montcalm et WolfeEt Epubcliff behind and attack the French who led by Louis Joseph Montcalm were largely unaware of Wolfe's tactics The battle that ensued on what would become known as the Plains of Abraham would forever shape the geography and politics of CanadaMontcalm and Wolfe written by one of the finest writers this country has ever produced is the epic story of this bat. Interesting to read the separate stories of two men forever associated together in the creation of Canada but who have never met That’s about it Book hard to follow as his timeline is not always lineal and can jump from one perspective to another within a chapter So many characters it gets confusing on which character is French or English especially towards the siege of uebec City The author was also uick to asses the scalping done by Indigenous characters and their thirst for war and the war spoils But never casted a dark light on French soldiers during war or peace Which seem obvious as a French author but not an entirely impartial portraying of the times Overall insight full book on their path to uebec City and on the last years of Nouvelle France It’s not a 5 stars since it wasn’t consistent and not a 4 since it was dull at moments
