Part one of a classic trilogy, written by one of England's greatest historians, that traces the life of Italian patriot Giuseppe Garibaldi--a man once described as "the only wholly admirable figure in history." Follow Garibaldi's life from his early education and training through his time in South America, his return to Italy, his defense of Rome against a French siege and his retreat to the republic of San Marino. ".one of my favorite books"--Julian Barnes, TLS

English historian whose work, written for the general reader as much as for the history student, shows an appreciation of the Whig tradition in English thought and reflects a keen interest in the Anglo-Saxon element in the English constitution. The third son of Sir George Otto Trevelyan, he was educated at Harrow and at Trinity College, Cambridge. He became Regius Professor of modern history at Cambridge in 1927 and master of Trinity College in 1940, retiring in 1951. Essentially liberal by training and temperament, Trevelyan showed as a historian a love of England that was also indicated by his association with the National Trust (Must England's Beauty Perish?, 1929) and with youth hostels. His regard for the Whigs is evidenced in his Lord Grey of the Reform Bill (1920) and Grey of Fallodon (1937). The romantic aspect of Trevelyan's liberalism led to three books on Giuseppe Garibaldi (1907, 1909, and 1911).
