Northern Armageddon

The Battle of the Plains of Abraham

“Riveting, human and thoroughly engaging—a must-read for anyone hoping to understand Canada.” Montreal Gazette

Nominated for the J.W. Dafoe Foundation Book Prize, Northern Armageddon presents a new and fascinating interpretation of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, one of the most dramatic and most important events in North American and global history.

Featuring never-before-seen quotations and images obtained through extensive research, this “definitive account of the battle” (Canadian Geographic) sees the campaign, battle and siege through the eyes of American, British, Canadian, French and First Nations participants ranging from Major General James Wolfe to a teenage Huron warrior. The final chapters trace the battle’s impact on Canada, the U.S., both countries’ native peoples and the world.

“Finally a book about… Armageddon, 1759… MacLeod presents a vivid, blow-by-blow account of that pivotal battle in Canadian history.” Maclean’s

“The best record of the true battle.” Ottawa Citizen
