Review

“After reading David McCullough’s account, you will never look at the old bridge in quite the same way again.”
—Christopher Lehmann-Haupt,
The New York Times

"
The Great Bridge is a great book. . . . This is the definitive book on the event. Do not wait for a better try: there won't be any."
Norman Rosten, Newsday

"
The Great Bridge is a book so compelling and complete as to be a literary monument. . . . McCullough has written that sort of work which brings us to the human center of the past."
—Los Angeles Times
