If Wolfe went to a hike in the twenty-four hours before or four hours later, the same situation would have been against it. Sinking ships at night from 11 to 12 or from 13 to 14 September, he was not able to gather on the shores of all its troops at dawn. It is possible that such technical considerations based on accurate scientific and mathematical calculations, explain why Wolf did not heed the advice of his commanders, and not landed much further upstream St. Lawrence River. The irony lies in the fact that the top-secret Woolf ruined its reputation as the events that occurred during the night of 12 to 13 September have given new meaning to the old phrase "military science". The British commander did not live to see the day, to explain exactly how he managed to make their calculations. But, although he was not an inspired commander, Wolfe went up to the desired height in the decisive night. While moving the fleet from the south to the north coast, he was at the forefront, dressed in a new military uniform.
