McCullough tells this incredible story using the usual characters of George III and George Washington, but also presents a wonderfully human narrative with tales from the soldiers and their families. A fantastic piece of historical writing, it examines not only the political decision to declare independence, but more importantly the key events on the battlefield that this fateful year saw, and the extreme change in luck for the Americans. A truly gripping read, an absolute essential for anyone interested in American history.
David McCullough is a winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the Francis Parkman Prize, the Los Angeles Times Book Award and has twice won the National Book Award.
