A good purchase, and a good read
on 14 August 2017
The text gives a sense of the world of the pirate, the sights, smells, honour, dishonour, morality, cowardice and chaos. It's well structured and easy to read and romps through the challenges faced. It's balanced with the facts and details, plus a narrative, comment and interpretation. Facts alone can be worthless unless placed in context and this book provides the beginner with the scene setting explanations but is also strong enough on facts and pace to hold the attention of a reader who has more knowledge of pirate literature and texts.
