In the first week of of the siege the weather conditions were horrible so the British held back. The next week thought British tried there luck at reaching shore but unsuccesfuly did not, but back on the British ship they hade found a cove that was entirely protected from the french. Wolfe sent 1,200 to that cove. The British then began bombarding the walls and in a matter of hours they destroyed the walls and seven building. The Britsh desroyed french ships and soon the French surrendered.
