Montcalm's Army (Men-at-Arms, Volume 23) by Martin Windrow

By Martin Windrow

The peace of Aix-la-Chapelle in 1748 didn't finish the hostility among the French and British in North the US. The French all started by way of inciting the local tribes however it was once simply in 1756 that struggle was once formally declared. The newly appointed French basic used to be the Marquis de Montcalm-Gozon de Saint-Veran. an excellent and lots more and plenty enjoyed officer, Montcalm was once hampered through the sour factional feeling with New France and his victories have been tarnished via the savage buthery of a few of his Indian and Canadian allies. This quantity strains the activities of his military throughout the Seven Years' conflict (1756-1763), together with his ultimate defeat to Wolfe at Quebec.
