4.0 out of 5 stars Talty brings the Caribbean of the 16th & 17th century to life in this engaging read, 19 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Empire of Blue Water: Henry Morgan and the Pirates Who Rules the Caribbean Waves (Paperback)
I've really enjoyed reading Empire of Blue Water, it's a relaxed and well thought out book that has held my attention and kept me wanting to turn the page throughout. I was unaware of the author before i picked this up but have enjoyed his style, it's a very well written piece of historic narrative. The story centre's losely around the biography of Henry Morgan and the privateers who sailed out of Port Royal in Jamaica and into the Spanish New world of the Southern Americas. Full of bloody accounts of the raids Morgan carried out on the Spanish main but with enough political intrigues and depth of the main characters involved to really flesh the story and bring its history to life within your mind. I have had no previous reading on this period of history and i must point out that this is more of a narrative heavy style of history and isnt a course text book full of facts ands figures but it has still done more than enough to capture my imagination and fire my desire to find further reading on this chapter of Britains naval past. Highly recommended.
