Giuseppe Garibaldi was praised for his military genius, his courage, and his charisma. Known 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 not only his fellow Italians, but people across the globe.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...an admirable piece of work. Besides giving us a vivid account of Garibaldi's successes and misfortunes, it supplies a dramatic picture of his personality. Mr. Hibbert's treatment of his subject, though never unsympathetic, is distinguised thorugh its realism and candour" - Peter Quennell, author of Vladimir Nabokov: A Tribute "Hibbert is a remarkably prolific popular historian, who can take on almost anything, from Dickens to General Wolfe, from Agincourt to Garibaldi" -- The Observer "A vivid biography of the hero of making modern Italy" -- The Times
