Promotional Information

In August 1756 Montcalm's daring use of "wilderness" tactics and siege-warfare techniques delivered the strategically vital Oswego forts into French hands, allowing them to dominate the Lake Ontario region for the next two years. Fully illustrated with specially commissioned colour artwork and an array of rare archive images, this lively study examines a key French success at the height of the French and Indian War.
