Praise

“Significantly advances our understanding of the naval role in the battle of the Plains of Abraham and excels all previous studies. . . . A vibrant portrait. . . . A visceral narrative. . . . Persuasive.” —David Preston, The Wall Street Journal
 
“Even-handed. . . . Vivid. . . . MacLeod has crafted a serious work of history that reads like an adventure novel. He skillfully illuminates the many ways Americans fit into the big picture of the continent’s conflicts, in which two big nations emerged out of a patchwork of contending powers.” —Clarke Crutchfield, Richmond Times-Dispatch
 
“Writing with a keen eye for the dramatic, MacLeod tells this story in a big way, giving equal parts to each side. . . . The events of the battle are finely rendered, and MacLeod makes a strong case for their importance as a precursor to the American Revolution.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“MacLeod explores the extent of Quebec’s insurmountable natural defenses and Wolfe’s inability to overcome them. . . . The author’s strong knowledge of every aspect of the fight prevails to produce an intricate, enlightening account. . . . Students of American history will appreciate the detail and the thoroughness of this account of what Churchill called the ‘first world war.’ ” —Kirkus
 
“Definitive . . . superb in its combination of individual perspective and strategic narrative. Americans (who composed roughly a third of the conquering army) did not realize at the time that as Montcalm’s men surrendered they had taken the first steps on their own country’s path to independence. This book tells us—brilliantly—both how the battle was fought, and what it meant.” —Eliot A. Cohen, author of Conquered into Liberty: Two Centuries of Battles Along the Great Warpath that Made the American Way of War
 
“Masterful . . . his descriptions are chilling.” —Toronto Globe and Mail
