CRIMSON WATERS: True Tales of Adventure, Looting, Kidnapping, Torture, and Piracy on the High Seas
Soon after the first maritime trade routes became operational, seafaring bandits appeared to prey upon the cargo, crews, and ships of others. This work traces the history of piracy around the globe stretching back from its roots in 2500 BCE, through the Golden Age of Piracy in the 17th and 18th centuries, and up to the modern-day pirates. Illustrated in color.
