    hudson1361's book review was featured in 1776: America and Britain at War.
    Revolution Without Emotion 1776 is a historical book about the Revolutionary War written by David McCullough. 1776 is about the year 1776 in the Revolutionary War and is composed of first hand accounts of military generals from both sides. Britain Colonies wanted freedom but Britain didn’t want them to break away. The Colonies then formed an army with George Washington as the General. 1776 talks a lot about war, training, underdogs, and resources. In my opinion 1776 was filled with too many facts and statistics and too little emotion. To me it was an unbalanced proportion between facts and feelings and I would rather it have more of the character’s thoughts instead of so many facts about what they had. In 1776 they speak very highly of General Washington and you will read multiple accounts of townspeople and colonels marveling over his magnificent build and how great he was on horseback. David McCullough wanted you to see Washington in the same way that they did 246 years ago and even puts in some quotes of Washington’s such as one which says “Perseverance and spirit have done wonders in all ages.”. Overall for me I would rate this book a three out of five because I couldn’t relate to what the characters were feeling and it was hard to passionately read like that. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves history and likes war statistics.
