From the PublisherPraise for Garibaldi:
"...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 (London) on Garibaldi
Praise for Christopher Hibbert:
"The writing of history is an exercise in instruction; but that is no reason why it should not also be an exercise in rhetoric, for there is a voluptas to the texture of history that is best conveyed by good writing. Gibbon understood this, so did Macaulay. And so does Christopher Hibbert."
