Overview

James Wolfe was hardly the model of an 18th-century major general: slight, delicately built, and eccentric, he died from tuberculosis at only 32 years of age.

Blending military history with biography, this action-packed account captures the spirit of an attractive yet perplexing man, and the turbulent time in which he lived.
