Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For this rousing, revisionist history, the former head of exhibitions at England's National Maritime Museum has combed original documents and records to produce a most authoritative and definitive account of piracy's "Golden Age." As he explodes many accepted myths (i.e. "walking the plank" is pure fiction), Cordingly replaces them with a truth that is more complex and often bloodier. 16 pp. of photos. Maps.

From the Hardcover edition.

Rami, January 1, 2011 (view all comments by Rami)
Under the Black Flag is a great read for anybody interested in the Golden Age of Piracy, or just piracy in general. The book dissects the popular image of the pirate, and reveals the true, frightful life of a pirate in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to look deeper than movies and plays about pirates, into the ways of these notorious criminals of the sea.
