Pirates: An Illustrated History

Pirates: An Illustrated History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is based on contemporaneous accounts from both pirates and their victims. An erudite explanation of everything piratical, this book portrays the pirates, their weapons, their ships, their victims, and the historical background for all the saltwater tales of both pirates and those in the navy. The exploits of the most famous pirates are also recounted here, from the cold-hearted ruthlessness of Blackbeard to the derring-do of Bartholomew Roberts, whose views were summed up by his motto: “A merry life, and a short one."
