The Capture of Louisbourg, 1758

The Capture of Louisbourg, 1758

"Louisbourg, France's ... fortress on Cape Breton Island's foggy Atlantic coast, dominated access to the St. Lawrence and colonial New France for forty years in the mid-eighteenth century. Hugh Boscawen describes how Britain's war minister William Pitt launched four fleets in a coordinated campaign to prevent France from reinforcing Louisbourg [during the French and Indian War]. As the author shows, the Royal Navy outfought its opponents before General Jeffrey Amherst and Brigadier James Wolfe successfully led 14,000 British regulars ... in a hard-fought assault landing ... The victory marked a turning point in British fortunes and precipitated the end of French rule in North America ... Victory enabled Wolfe to sail up an unguarded St. Lawrence to attack Quebec in 1759"--Jacket.
