    1. A triumphalist take on the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, first published in 1959. To be fair, Stacey points out the strategic shortcomings of both Wolfe and Montcalm, one of whom seemed to spend the entire summer of 1759 wondering what the hell to do, the other of whom seemed to spend the entire summer of 1759 wondering what the hell to do in response. Still, the author's sentiments lean unabashedly towards the redcoats. This is one for the "Rule Britannia" crowd.
