1776 is not a novel in the traditional sense. It is told entirely by a narrator. There is no dialogue and you frequently will see both sides of the war depicted. It is more a compilation of historical documents than anything, but don’t let that make you think that this is a history textbook. It is anything but that. It is as compelling as any thriller. It genuinely made me happy when the rebels took Dorchester heights and made me depressed after the long series of retreats that they suffer through (although that may be my already-existing sympathy for my home country). This book also made me feel an incredible amount of respect for the entire rebel army. Their perseverance throughout everything that they suffered, to the point where most would have given up hope, (and many did) is amazing. Especially for George Washington is this true. I’m not a military buff, but I haven’t heard of a more devoted general. If it weren’t for him, his strict disciplinary work and his willingness to put his own life on the line, I wonder if we would have an America today.
