—Brumwell, Stephen, 1960-
Restricted DAISY Zip (CELA)
2009

Ugly, gangling, and tormented by agonizing illness, Major General James Wolfe was an unlikely hero, but in 1759, on the Plains of Abraham, he won a battle with momentous consequences. Once venerated as the embodiment of military genius, Wolfe's reputation has recently undergone revision by historians painting him as bloodthirsty and priggish. Brumwell, drawing on extensive research, offers a reassessment of a soldier whose short life altered the course of world history. Descriptions of violence. 2006.
