Osprey Men-at-Arms 48 : Wolfe's Army (1998)

In the days of the British Empire, the Seven Years' War was a landmark in schools' history lessons. The 'year of miracles', 1759, when Horace Walpole could write only half mockingly 'one can never afford to miss a single copy of a newspaper for fear of missing a British victory somewhere', was still a matter not only of pride, but also of great interest. Only in America, despite the matchless splendour of Francis Parkman's writing on the period, was the 'French and Indian War', as the Seven Years' War has always been called there, rather neglected. It was a 'colonial days' campaign in the minds of later Americans for whom life began in the 1770s, and only in states where the battles had been fought was it - and is it - much recalled. Robin May brings vividly to life the history of this ferocious war, the 'cast' of which included the likes of George Washington, Sir William Johnson, Lord Howe, Abercromby and the twin heroes of the great drama; Montcalm and Wolfe. Robin May's text is accompanied by numerous illustrations and eight full page colour plates by Gerry Embleton.
