Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for two other titles (Truman and John Adams on American history, David McCullough’s 1776 was one of the year’s most highly anticipated release. 1776 tells the story of George Washington waging a brave battle against Britain for independence with a ragtag army. Based on extensive research in American and British archives, the story moves along with a strong narrative intensity that will surprise readers who have always thought that history was boring.
