Editorial Reviews

In conjunction with Louisbourg 1758: "...an attractive series, well known to serious military history buffs and casual interest readers alike...well illustrated, with supporting maps, prints, photos and artists' impressions... These are two good volumes, which would be a useful addition to any collection on that period, providing the reader with a large breadth of information in a very digestible format." -Lieutenant-Colonel Keith W. Kiddie MA, Canadian Army Journal (Summer 2006)
