In 1776 the American Revolution against British rule shook the world - and the United States was born.
David McCullogh depicts the events of that fateful year with breathtaking imagination and flare, from the British decision to crush the Americans to the bitter setbacks and astonishing advances made by the patriot army. Whether King George III and George Washington or ordinary soldiers and their families, McCullogh recreates a cast of amazing characters on both sides, destroys myths and uses eyewitness reports to brilliant effect, making 1776 the most compelling account of this seismic conflict.
