The Career of General James Wolfe

from Culloden to Quebec

Stuart Reid


James Wolfe is chiefly remembered as the Hero of Quebec; the 32 year old Major General who died on the Plains of Abraham winning Canada for the British Empire. Yet as this new biography by Stuart Reid reveals he also had an enormous influence on the British Army itself.

I reckon it a very great misfortune to this country," he once wrote to his mother, "that I, your son, who have, I know, but a very modest capacity, and some degree of diligence a little above the ordinary run, should be thought, as I am, one of the best officers of my rank in the service."
