"I wanted to read 1776 because I'm very interested in history. I was a history major in college, and so it - the American Revolutionary period is certainly a very fascinating period. This book is about the year 1776 from a military perspective. It's about George Washington and his victory at Boston - bloodless victory - his defeat in the Battle of Brooklyn and then subsequent, miraculous victory in Trenton, New Jersey. McCullough actually does a very good job of describing conditions in the camp and just the way that a ragtag army could defeat an army of superior size. It doesn't read like a history textbook. A lot of history textbooks can be very dry and just recitation of facts, and 1776 is not one of those. It's a book that is written in a narrative form that's very exciting and fast paced. I would give this book four stars out of five. It's very - like I said, it's a very fast-paced novel, it's one that - not novel, but book - that grabs the reader's attention and keeps it throughout. It's what would be called a page turner."
