Montcalme and Wolfe frames the war years through the lives of its two brilliant opposing generals. Weaving together the campaigns on both sides of the Atlantic. Parkman travels from opulent royal courts to muddy colonial fields, from Fort Necessity to the Plains of Abraham. He couples impeccable history with rich insightful narration, revealing the war as a deeply personal conflict between Louis de Montcalm and James Wolfe, the two ambitious leaders who ultimately died heroes' deaths on the frontlines. Accompanied by over forty detailed maps and illustrations—some selected specially for this edition—Parkman's timeless work shows how the enormous transfer of land from France to England at the war's end sowed the first seeds of colonialism—seeds that, in the due course, led America to its revolution, and eventually, its independence.
