Battle Of The Brave - Trailer

I remember getting pretty excited when this came out - a film set during the fall of New France - yes please - got Depardieu in it - even better but everyone has said it's a terrible film so I never bothered. The trailer is worth a look though.

Battle of Sainte-Foy 1760

 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Battle of Sainte-Foy, sometimes called the Battle of Quebec, was fought on April 28, 1760 near the British-held town of Quebec in the French province of Canada during the Seven Years' War 
   It was a victory for the French under the Chevalier de Lévis over the British army under General Murray. The battle was notably bloodier than the Battle of the Plains of Abraham of the previous September, with 833 French casualties to 1,124 British casualties. It was the last French victory of the French and Indian War.
