WORST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ
If you hate reading about history don't even look at this book. This book has little dialogue and no plot. The first chapter itself is really bad. Definitely would not suggest this book to ANYONE. 🤦♂️

Another good read by Mr. McC. Simple. Informative. Believable. He sets the stage and puts you in the cast. This is my third book of his and will read the rest.
Oh, that Mr. McCullough had taught at my high school! More there would have been in class and fewer at the donut shop; more future teachers would have sprung from the class of '61 to inspire other students with the truth of the Republic rather than the shadowy liberal view of the current curriculum.
Keep going, Mr. McCullough, keep going.

This is a very interesting book that make you realize how close this country came to remaining a possession of Great Britain. How did these great thinkers of the time think they could defeat the greatest Army of the world at that time, with no Army, no weapons, no ammunition and no military leaders and no money! It is truly a miracle that we became a nation! My, how close we came to just being a big burr under King George's seat.

Amazing, wonderful, magnificent
This is a great read. Both sides had something to loose but only onside had something great to gain. This book really gives insight into the redcoats as well as the colonies.
A must read.

The story of the Revolution is told so eloquently by David McCullough that it reads more as a vibrant and wildly entertaining story of courage than a traditional history text. Engaging and unforgettable.
Through great detail and an awesome ability to tell a complex story, the author brings to life the most significant year in American history. He mixes in first hand accounts and facts in a way that makes historical events come to life in a vivid story. A must read for anyone interested in American history, especially the revolution years.
