Based on extensive research in both American and British archives, 1776 is the story of Americans in the ranks, men of every shape, size, and color, farmers, schoolteachers, shoemakers, no-accounts, and mere boys turned soldiers. And it is the story of the British commander, William Howe, and his highly disciplined redcoats who looked on their rebel foes with contempt and fought with a valor too little known. But it is the American commander-in-chief who stands foremost -- Washington, who had never before led an army in battle.… (mere)

McCullough takes you on the roller coaster ride of 1776, showing how small decisions and contingencies add up to create one of the turning points in history. He paints a compelling pictures of the naive hopes and disappointments from the militiamen, the frustrations of Gen. Washington, and the obliviousness of the British. ( )

Good but not my favorite book about GW and the war! ( )

McCullough is a master of making history accessible. And 1776 really shows how close we were to losing everything, if Howe had pushed harder.

1776 is well-researched and compellingly written, but at its foundation, it's a book about two groups of men trying to solve a conflict with projectiles and bayonets. It doesn't mention slavery except in passing and Native Americans and Black soldiers get barely a glance, which feels incomplete at best. I'm more interested in the "why" than in the battle details, but reading about the struggles, uncertainty, and disillusionment in the beginning of the U.S. while our democracy is under such threat now was somewhat comforting.

In his exhaustively researched and highly accessible new book, "1776," best-selling historian David McCullough (two-time Pulitzer winner for "John Adams" and "Truman") follows the Continental Army through a single, fateful year, one filled with surprise victories, stunning reversals, perilous midnight retreats and pure, grind-it-out perseverance. It's a story filled with drama, and McCullough shows himself once again to be among our nation's great storytellers.
 
In his new book, ''1776,'' David McCullough brings to bear on this momentous year the narrative gifts he's demonstrated in such absorbing histories as ''The Great Bridge'' and ''The Path Between the Seas.'' As a history of the American Revolution, it is an oddly truncated volume: pivotal developments leading to the revolution like the Stamp Act, which happen to fall outside the perimeters of Mr. McCullough's rigid time frame, are not examined, and subsequent installments of the war (which would continue on after the Trenton-Princeton campaign for another half-dozen harrowing years) are ignored as well.
