Description: Giuseppe Garibaldi was praised for hisnbsp;military genius, his courage, and his charisma. Known as the "Hero of Two Worlds," Garibaldi's military prowess extended to the Americas,nbsp;where he played a major role in thenbsp;Brazilian struggle fornbsp;independence.nbsp;During hisnbsp;fight for Italian unification Garibaldi personally led an army ofnbsp;local untrained rebels to victory in Palermo, Naples, and Sicily.nbsp;His forces suffered from lack of equipment, food, and money, and yet Garabaldi commanded their fierce loyalty. Christopher Hibbertnbsp;reveals how this iconic figure earned the adulation of not only his fellow Italians, but people across the globe.
