1776, a Book Review

Over lunch today, I finished 1776 by renowned historian David McCullough.  It’s the fourth book I’ve read on my Kindle Fire.

While this was definitely an enjoyable and educational experience, I found it a little lacking.  Perhaps it was due my assumption that the subject matter was going to encompass all aspects of that era.  But it had one singular focus — telling the story of the War of 1776.

It is quite obvious that Mr. McCullough did extensive research in preparation for this tome.  I highly recommend it, especially for anyone who’s a history buff, or has a great love of war stories.

Not always a page turner, you will be highly enlightened and hear many new details of the battles won and lost during the American Revolution.
