Empires of the Sea shows the Mediterranean as a majestic and bloody theatre of war. Opening with the Ottoman victory in 1453 it is a breathtaking story of military crusading, Barbary pirates, white slavery and the Ottoman Empire - and the larger picture of the struggle between Islam and Christianity. Coupled with dramatic set piece battles, a wealth of riveting first-hand accounts, epic momentum and a terrific denouement at Lepanto, this is a work of history at its broadest and most compelling.
Empires of the Sea: The Final Battle for the Mediterranean, 1521-1580, by Roger Crowley, is one of the most gripping and exciting stories ever told of an epic period of international warfare, now beautifully repackaged.
