St John's Newfoundland 1762


A small campaign that might make a good wargame is the French attack and British recapture of St John's. Read about the British order of battle in William Amherst's journal here.
If you want an account from someone from the ranks try 'Recollections of an old soldier' David Perry - a fascinating insight from a Massachussetts man.
French forces included the regiment de Montrevel (image and caption),
