The Siege of Quebec

This account by John Knox is the definitive, first person, account of the campaign to take Quebec in 1759 and comes beautifully bound and in a lovely Folio Society box. Knox also goes on to describe the battle of Sainte Foy and was present when Montreal capitulated. Another notable character featured in the tale is an, at the time, little known mariner by the name of James Cook. If you're going to read any account of the battle for Quebec, this is the one to read.
