Overview

Manning’s account of the final battle on the Plains of Abraham is a detailed analysis of General Wolfe's genius and the reasons for his success. But the conflict didn't end with Wolfe's victory: at the battle of St Foy in 1760, the French beat the British and again laid siege to Quebec. The siege failed and, aided by the Royal Navy, the British were finally able to force the French Army back to Montreal and capture Quebec. But Britain's relationship with her new North American colonial subjects quickly turned sour, leading directly to the outbreak of war with America. The final siege of Quebec was by the Americans in 1776. It failed, securing the future of Canada as a separate political entity. A thrilling tale told with consummate skill and real narrative pace, Quebec: The Story of Three Sieges offers an exciting new perspective on the events that changed the face of North America.
