..".evokes admiration, praise and excitement...a very impressive affair, indeed."--Sunday Times. James Wolfe was hardly the very model of an 18th-century major general: slight and delicately built, his eccentricities sometimes lent him an air of madness. He died at only 32 years of age, suffering from tuberculosis and other debilitating ailments. And yet this was the man whose troops destroyed the French empire in Canada and whose capture of Quebec by scaling the Heights of Abraham has become legendary. Blending military history with biography, this action-packed and highly enjoyable account captures the spirit of an attractive yet perplexing man who perished at the moment of his greatest victory, as well as the turbulent time in which he lived.
