Northern Armageddon is the story of the Siege of Quebec and its climax, the Battle of the Plains of Abraham. A brief bloody affair, it brought a brutal end to the Seven Years’ War in North America, the first truly global conflict – and the first truly modern one – waged against civilians and cities as well as soldiers and fortifications. This is a story of strategy, generals and geopolitics – and ordinary people. A british sailor, an American irregular, a French officer, a Huron warrior, a nun who tended the wounded; their impressions, captured in letters and journals, give us a new, more human view of the battle, one often absent from the history books.
