Description Montcalm and Wolfe


Francis Parkman (1823-1893) has been hailed as one of America's great nineteenth century historians, along with William Prescott, John Lothrop Motley, George Bancroft, and Henry Adams. He is a master of narrative history and is most known for his "The Oregon Trail" and his seven volume work on the history of the French and English in North America. "Montcalm and Wolfe", the seventh and last volume of the series, covers the conflict between England and France for supremacy in the New World from 1745 to 1884. The Seven Years War (the French and Indian War in the United States) is the denouement of this 200 year struggle with General Wolfe dying on the Plains of Abraham at the moment of victory. - Summary by Richard Carpenter
