Fort William Henry 1757

Excellent little documentary on this, perhaps one of the most famous of sieges in the F&I war. Depicted in LotM this was a French propaganda disaster with the so-called massacre that followed it became a cause celebre for the Yankees. Recently this view of the aftermath has been challenged in such books as 'Betrayals' by Ian Steele which I recommend to anyone interested in trying to understand this event.
