Gelesen von James K. White

(4,235 Sterne; 17 Bewertungen)

A history of the pirating activities along and around the "Barbary coast" between the 15th and 19th centuries, from the time of the pirate, Ujra Barbarossa, to the French control of Algeria in 1830. Although piracy had plagued all the world's waterways from the first time man decided to trade by boat or ship, authors Lane-Poole and Kelley tell mainly of the origins and "Golden Age" of the Moor pirates who rampaged the Mediterranean Sea from ports of call along the north coast of Africa. - Summary by James K.

History in a rousing style

(5 Sterne)

Beautifully written and exciting account if of somewhat questionable historical accuracy. Not a monograph. The reader does a stupendous job: clear and dramatic delivery, even of the author’s formal rhetoric.

great book and an even better reader
