    1 thought on “Garibaldi's Defense of the Roman Republic 1848 to 1849

    1. If you don't know who Giuseppe Garibaldi is, it is time to learn. A founder of modern Italy, Garibaldi led one of the most heroic lives of all time. I don't know how Hollywood has not made a movie of his life. If I ever write a screenplay (ha!), it will be about Garibaldi. William Wallace has nothing on this man.This book is the first volume of a trilogy about the man's life, so it does not end well. The author tracks Garibaldi's life from boyhood through his years in exile. Banished from the pr [...]

    2. Garibaldi's Defense of the Roman Republic 1848 to 1849, which is the first of three volumes of George Macaulay Trevelyan's biography of Garibaldi, is an absolute joy to read and a wonderful piece of historical writing. Published in 1907, it is clearly a work that belongs to another age but it has not in any way been superseded and may never be.

    3. Trevelyan was notoriously biased in his writing style and Garibaldi is proof of that. A fine author, but not one to quote in a university dissertation - unless, of course, you are discussing historiography.This trilogy was written at the watershed of the great narrative histories of Macauly, Froude, Lecky and Seeley. Trevelyan also belongs to the 'gentlemen scholar' era of historians. In that sense it is fascinating. But is it really a fine example of history writing? Its more like the pop histo [...]

    4. First volume of a biography of Garibaldi. I didn't find this dated at all -- actually really well written and engaging, without a the usual modern, academic jargon to wade through. And stirring stuff, really. A good little section on a speech of Garibaldi's that Churchill later appropriated.
