Never knew the specifics of this history, so found the story useful. But found the recounts of who, where, and when a bit tedious. Glad to listen, rather than read, where I could do chores as the slower parts of the war's progress could flow along in the background, and where I could tune in for each of the crucial turning points, which were aptly told. Fans of the history genre may rank this higher than I, given my requirements for history include more sizzle to be palatable.
The narration was outstanding! The history was extremely well presented. A beautiful presentation, it was an enjoyable bit of our early history. Well done!

By far, my favorite audiobook to date. McCullough is a BRILLIANT author and narrator. He brings to life, in vivid detail, the historic characters and events so that you get a new appreciation of life during our nation's struggle for independence. Am looking forward to more from McCullough.
Definitely one of my top five books of all time. I think everyone should read this in school and see for themselves the difficulties and hardships that were overcome in establishing this country. George Washington is rightfully a hero.
Great story of perseverance and small actions producing disproportional results. This should serve as an example to all who how personal liberties were hard fought, secured and need to guarded and preserved.
I didn't want this to be over! The narration is second to none. The story is well set in context and the writing style is uniquely straightforward and at the same time engaging and imaginative. This should be required reading for every high school and college early American history class!
