Louis-Joseph de Montcalm (1712-1759) was the French commander in Canada during the Seven Years’ War with England (also called the French and Indian War). James Wolfe (1727-1759) was the opposing British general who won the conflict. This vivid history of their clash is the final volume of Francis Parkman’s seven-volume France and England in North America.
