 About the Book 

The first book in English to evaluate this heroic if abortive insurrection of the Tyroleans against the Napolenic new order in Europe.

The uprising was motivated by the desire to shake off Bavarian control and to return to the Habsburg monarchy rather than by Pan-German interests as German nationalists have claimed. Widespread fascination with the uprising has not abated in 175 years- partly because of its picturesque setting, colorful personalities, and tragic ending as symbolized by Andreas Hofer, its peasant leader, and partly because of the ongoing controversy between Austria and Italy regarding the status of the area where he was born) the Sudtirol/Alto Adige region.
