Le débarquement de Wolfe

English: Here, 8th June, 1758, the men of Brigadier General James Wolfe's brigade, after having been repulsed with heavy loss by the French troops entrenched westward made their gallant and successful landing.
Thus began the operation which ended on 26th July by the capitulation of Louisbourg.


French: Le 8 juin 1758, les soldats de la brigade du Général James Wolfe, après avoir été repoussés avec grandes pertes par les français retranchés à l'ouest assurèrent par leur audace leur descente en cet endroit.
Ce fut le début de la campagne qui devait se terminer par la capitulation de Louisbourg, 29 juillet.
