About this product
- DescriptionGiuseppe Garibaldi was praised for his military genius, his courage, and his charisma. Kwn as the Hero of Two Worlds, Garibaldi's military prowess extended to the Americas, where he played a major role in the Brazilian struggle for independence. During his fight for Italian unification Garibaldi personally led an army of local untrained rebels to victory in Palermo, Naples, and Sicily. His forces suffered from lack of equipment, food, and money, and yet Garabaldi commanded their fierce loyalty. Christopher Hibbert reveals how this iconic figure earned the adulation of t only his fellow Italians, but people across the globe.
