George Macaulay Trevelyan (1876-1962) was a British historian who eschewed objectivity in favor of passionate engagement in his works, which reflected his personal commitment to Whig and Liberal principles (his great-uncle was the staunch Whig, Thomas Babington Macaulay). Among his best-known books are Garibaldi and the Making of Italy (1911), British History in the Nineteenth Century (1922), and An Autobiography and Other Essays (1949).

This volume focuses on Garibaldi’s famous victory over the Neopolitan troops with just his 1,000 ragged rebels.
