Garibaldi, The Thousand and the unification of Italy.
One of the great adventures of European history. For generations men had talked of uniting Italy (which had been fragmented since the fall of the Roman Empire). It seemed impossible – Italy was a cluster of small kingdoms plus Austria – yet in one short summer campaign, a thousand young men led by Garibaldi, amateur soldiers, descended on Sicily and fought their way against everything that could be thrown at them, up through the peninsula to create the modern state of Italy. A tale in the heroic mould.
