I really enjoyed this book, as I have any David McCullough books that I have read. It provides great historical detail about the events of 1776 and the Continental Army. Unfortunately Washington's army spent most of 1776 losing to the British. It wasn't until the last few days of the year, starting with the crossing of the Delaware and victory against the Hessians that the war started turning. The book pretty much ends at the end of 1776 (hence the title), so you don't get much of the good news as the war turned in favor of the Americans. I would be cool if he had gone through the end of the war or added a sequel. Still, I definitely enjoyed and recommend this book.
