Bradstreet and the destruction of Fort Frontenac

Bradstreet biography
Interesting article by R Chartrand on the campaign against this well established French fort.
I don't know why John Bradstreet isn't more famous - he was certainly one of the best colonial leaders of the period with an impressive pedigree of achievements. He will always be associated with bateaux but he did much more in a war often populated with incompetents.
