's review

it was amazing

Wonderfully readable history. I was gripped! Aside from having to briefly reference (Google) a couple of New York and New Jersey maps to orient myself in the midst of battle narratives, it was easy to get immersed. My one complaint is more of a disappointment based on my own assumptions. I thought the book would cover the whole of the Revolutionary War. It covers only the year 1776. In retrospect, maybe I should have seen that coming. I want more! Write the rest of the story, McCullough!
