About the Book

A MAN OF DESTINY is an Epic about the life of Giuseppe Garibaldi and his struggle to free Italy from outside rulers. Up until 1871 Italy was composed of many rulers: Austria in the North East, a King over Naples and Sicily, a Sardinian King in the North West, a French Emperor who ruled over Rome, and different Princes ruling over Central Italy. Italians spoke many different dialects, but after the unification only one language was spoken. Giuseppe Garibaldi's destiny was to unite Italy as one country. He and his famous Red-Shirts had to fight many rulers in 1870. He first began by conquering Sicily and worked his way north. He was considered a hero especially by European women who adored him.
