Improvement suggestions[edit]

Nice work, Mathieu. However, a few things that could be improved. The tone of the article is (in my opinion) over-biased to Wolfe and his actions. While he is the aggressor and deserves more attention, Montcalm is not entirely passive. A few things that might help the balance:

  • a summary of the French defences (including troop counts and how long it took to construct the Beauport line)
  • how does Montcalm react when the ships pass the city? (presumably the Samos battery is the result of Montcalm's reaction, but this is hardly clear as currently written)
  • According to Parkman, Montcalm moves forces significantly toward Montmorency (reinforcing the left) when he realizes what Wolfe is up to in the opening moves of the battle.

Yes, you are right that the focus is too much on what Wolfe is doing. I will see what I can gather to address these points. -- Mathieugp (talk) 15:36, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
