Book Review: 1776Authors: David McCullough
Based on extensive research in both American and British archives, David McCullough's "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 -- George Washington, who had never before led an army in battle.
