I am starting work on a scenario for the Plains of Abraham 1759, the battle that saw French Canada defeated. I have a quandary. In the actual battle, Montcalm believed the British were about to entrench, so he attacked before reinforcements could be called in from positions to the east (at least one battalion of regulars and some more militia) and before Bougainville could arrive from the west (1 ad-hoc regular battalion, several militia units). Wolfe had filled out his will but neglected to bring entrenching tools. Once deployed, he sent messengers for the tools.
The player will know this. Any ideas on how I put the onus of attack on the French instead of them waiting for Bougainville?
