BOOK - Quebec, 1759 The Siege and the Battle
By C.P. Stacey.
This is a revised edition, edited and with new material Donald E. Graves

A superb account of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham -- a turning point in the history of North America. The capture of the town of Quebec by British forces under James Wolfe in 1759 brought about the ultimate British victory in the contest with France for dominance in North America. It opened the door to the independence of the thirteen English colonies some twenty years later, and the brief dramatic battle outside the walls of Quebec set the course for the future Canada.

C.P. Stacey's book has long been regarded as the best on the siege and the battle and the events that preceded them. The drama and significance of the battle, and the lionization of Wolfe, have diverted attention from the pertinent and intriguing questions that the historian must ask, and which Stacey was one of the first and most astute to answer. Who made the plans? When were the critical decisions taken? Why did they succeed and how nearly did they fail? What sort of man was General Wolfe? Was Montcalm a good or better soldier? Stacey's text offers important new evidence and discussion of these and other questions in an approach that is even-handed, knowledgeable and wonderful reading.

In this handsome new edition, Stacey's text appears in its entirety. Editor Donald E. Graves has, however, added many new picture essays and maps, as well as new appendices and updated references and bibliography, making this the most complete, attractive and authoritative book available on the subject.
