McCullough talks about the paltry and considerable wars and the commands from both sides leaving out no details. McCullough brought numerous aspects into this book that various non- action books cannot achieve. 1776 is filled with umpteen details that help make the book more clear and visible to the mind. Starting on the first page, there are stellar details describing this halcyon setting. The day was cool, but clear skies and sunshine, a rarity in London, brightened everything, and the royal cavalcade, spruced and polished, shone to Weather its gossip from General Howe (267) or about a play teasing famous leaders (75) McCullough leaves out no juicy fun facts from that time period that most people do not know, which helps make the book further interesting. One sough aspect that McCullough successfully avoided was dragging on one topic to the point where it gets tedious and uninteresting, which helps make the book effortless to read.
Like everything the book also has flaws to it. I personally do not like history so I did not savor 1 776 as much as I would a book of my choice. The Revolutionary War is not a favorite time period of mine that would pick a book to read about, which is an issue to anyone. Not knowing the key points of the war could also make the book slightly confusing and the plot a bit vague. The details given are swell but so many people and places are given tit so many details which makes ifs tough to understand what’s essential to the overall plot.
I would not recommend 1776 by David McCullough because myself didn’t enjoy the book much. If someone didn’t know the time period well or was uninterested in the topic such as myself, they wouldn’t grasp it or find it interesting and entertaining to read. The majority of people enjoy novels or fictional books and do not care much for books based on facts. If I knew the person liked history than I would recommend it, but for the general public I do not. 1776 By Near-Chorine
