This review is from: The Republic of Pirates: Being the true and surprising story of the Caribbean pirates and the man who brought them down (Paperback)
I've always been interested in the stories of famous pirates and thanks to this book I've found out the real stories are much more interesting than the legends. Woodard doesn't focus wholly on them though, he also includes a lot of information on life in early 18th century Britain for context which I found just as interesting, Information seems to be well researched and if there is any doubt Woodard states it.
Overall, not too heavy going, very interesting and exactly what you want when it comes to real pirate stories.
