GUEST,PMB Remembered More in Song than History Books (43) RE: Remembered More in Song than History Books 07 Apr 08


Wolfe was killed at Quebec after manoeuvring his army up the Heights of Abraham, which was lightly defended because the French defenders thought it was unfeasable to attack by that route. The battle was unusual in that the commanders of both armies were killed, though no one sings about Montcalm that I've heard of.

Other military leaders remembered in song- Hitler (for having only one ball) and King Caractacus (though not for his military exploits).
