3 editions published in 1928 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It has recently been stated, on high authority, that 'there is scarcely a place for another life' of Wolfe; and I am fully aware of my rashness in writing this book. But, if we except Mrs. Wolfe-Aylward's Pictorial life of James Wolfe, which did not claim to be more than a commentary on its admirable illustrations, no biography of Wolfe has appeared for eighteen years. Meanwhile, newly-discovered evidence of great interest has shed fresh light on his character and exploits, and has been summarised and discussed in scattered articles or in books which are primarily concerned with other subjects. It seemed to me therefore that I was warranted in making an attempt to set down what scholarship now permits us to say and think about him"--Preface
Montcalm and Wolfe by Francis Parkman( Book )

2 editions published between 1908 and 1995 in French and English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frames the war years through the lives of its two brilliant opposing generals. Weaving together the campaigns on both sides of the Atlantic, Parkman travels from opulent royal courts to muddy colonial fields, from Fort Necessity to the Plains of Abraham. He couples impeccable history with rich, insightful narration, revealing the war as a deeply personal conflict between Louis de Montcalm and James Wolfe, the two ambitious leaders who ultimately died heroes' deaths on the frontlines. Accompanied by over forty detailed maps and illustrations--some selected specially for this edition--Parkman's work shows how the enormous transfer of land from France to England at the war's end sowed the first seeds of colonialism--seeds that, in due course, led America to its revolution, and eventually, its independence.--Back cover
