The End-All Be-All of Pirate Books,
By A Customer
This review is from: Under the Black Flag (Harvest Book) (Paperback)
This is truly the one source for pirate information. Written by the worlds leading authority on the subject this leaves no myth standing and no stone unturned. It is a long book that takes you through a complete history of pirates and what they were really like. Like ships? Its in here. Like plundering? Its in here. Want to know what happened to them? Why some are corsairs and others are buccaneers? Its in here. Even if your interest in pirates is a moderate one, drop the money for this book. You won't put it down, matey.
