: It seems strange to me that Montcalm didn't take precautions against the Indian attack on the British troupes. Afterall, Magua all but told him that he intended to get his revenge on 'Grey-Hair.'
Well, I've seen discussion on this site about Montcalm realizing that Magua would attack them, and by doing nothing to prevent it, facilitating it to happen. When Magua and Monty are talking on the hillside, Monty tells Magua that he fears that, now that he's let them go according to the agreement, he may have to fight the same men again on his drive towards Albany....then he gives Magua a LOOK.....in other words, 'hey, maybe you can help me by wiping them out aforehand?'
